Home sweet home.

"I asked if there was a basement," exclaimed Darby Janken as he glanced toward his new home. "they told me the Air Force had deactivated this site years ago."

The Jankens are just one of dozens of new homeowners apprehensive about their new 'green home' in the expanse of the Arizona desert.

The developers for 'Green and Clean' were unavailable as the sales trailer, is also -- missing.

"How could anyone build homes on an active military installation and not raise the eyebrows of the Air Force," asked Mrs. Janken?"

"First they fly nukes across country and now this," yelled a voice from the slowly assembling group.

The Air Force declined comment in face of it's recent embarrassment and subsequent dismissal of top generals.

Attorneys for the homeowners secured a guarantee from the military to allow existing homeowners access to their property until Congress decides.

"How come the 'officials' are mum when I ask if the warheads were removed," enquired Darby Janken?"

Jokingly, one resident blurted, "Guess we'll be the first to know if there is a nuclear war?"

Silent fear gripped the crowd as nervous states flitted skyward.
