*** To be fair to them, it's not like the refugees have a whole lot of choice. Even if the town doesn't have the food to feed them, going out on the road means near-certain death.
*** Plus, there were IIRC something like 50 refugees. The town population was stated to be 5000, so the refugees comprised something like 1% of the population. So everyone's rations are reduced by one percent--didn't seem like much relatively speaking. One could see a policy going forward of not taking in more refugees, but kicking out the ones already there, many of whom did contribute labor or skills (like the med student) to the town, did seem rather cruel and a bit capricious.

** Eric was a selfish ass. He was cheating on his wife, remember? He's not exactly a guy with a strong moral core. Any opportunity he found to be indignant and self-righteous, he took. Mary Bailey wasn't any better, given that even when Eric's wife was DYING, she still felt like she wasn't receiving enough of his attention.

** Denial is not an unusual response to the situation even in normal circumstances. After the apocalypse, with minimal medical help available? Completely understandable.

**** Some countries do have two capital cities: the Netherlands and South Africa are prominent examples. Perhaps Austin remains the administrative center while San Antonio has become the home of the president/prime minister/whatever and where foreign embassies are based.

\n** Probably like most people who cheat on their spouse, he blamed his actions on his wife and saw the marriage failing as HER fault and not his own, therefore, in his way of reasoning, he should be the one filing for divorce. Or he could just be one of those that cheats but never itnends on leaving his spouse nor wants to commit to another woman either.

*** The 20+ bombs set off were essentially ground-level nukes. The EMP induced by these bombs would be highly localized. But when J&R (or someone) set off the bombs many miles high in the atmosphere, ''that'' EMP was enough to shatter the North American energy and communications grid.

\n* Where did Eric get off being angry at April for filing divorce papers? He was cheating on her with Mary. And he was going to leave her anyways for Mary! So when did he think he had the right to plan to leave her and yet be angry when she already filed the paperwork?

** It's possible that Beck's particular unit was on the west coast for training or transportation, or that he and his men were recalled by the AS government before it was clear that there were indeed two separate factions in the US. Careful observation, however, will reveal that Beck's 10th Mountain insignia is colored differently than the real unit, perhaps suggesting that this is wholly the ASA's version of the 10th Mountain.
