n.— «What’s to blame for the moral rot? It’s not drug dealing or gang wars. In Danbury the vice, according to local officials and longtime residents, is volleyball. Specifically, “ecuavolley,” a form of the game so beloved in Ecuador that when Ecuadorians began migrating en masse to this small working-class New England city, they built backyard courts all over town, some big enough to accommodate up to 150 fans and players.» —“Serving Up a Conflict” by Nathan Thornburgh in Danbury, Conn. Time Aug. 1, 2005.
