Wow!
Did you read the book "The Road" by Cormac McCarthy? It's a post-apocalyptic tale about a father and his young son who are forced to travel across a landscape blasted by an unspecified cataclysm that destroyed most of the civilization and almost all life on Earth. They have to hide from human cannibals...that's what McCarthy turns humans into when there is nothing left.
As I read the book, I found that part interesting but sort of unbelievable. It was one of those horrific things our minds don't want to believe.
After reading this article and seeing some of the photos of the devastation and of looting/theft, I think cannibalism might just be a horrible reality...
Scary!
