33-11-23 The Kreider's House Burns Down

The Gooks' neighbors, the Kreider family, lose their home to fire.  The Gooks, along with the whole neighborhood, become on-lookers, and despite the human tragedy, the fire brings an air of excitement and curiosity to all involved.
When faced with the fact that the neighborhood is standing around gawking at the fire, Sade makes a statement about how people are wired to be drawn to dramatic events such as a fire and to gawk.
The Kreider family is not mentioned in any Vic and Sade broadcast other than this one that I know of, which kind of makes the fire seem like less of a tragedy, since there are no bonds between the two families.

[The gist of this episode is revealed in the book, Vic and Sade on the Radio: A Cultural History of Paul Rhymer's Daytime Series.  The title is one I have given the show purely for identification purposes only.]
