Public Service Message

If you've got a kid who stays at home alone while waiting to leave for afternoon school, please, please remind him/her to never leave the gate open, and the door unlocked.

Robbery's a 24 hour enterprise. Can't afford to be naive these days, and no, I'm not just saying that because I've grown old and wizened. My next door neighbor got robbed in broad friggin' daylight. And you know what the kicker was? While one guy inside held a knife to the poor kid's throat, and his accomplice ransacked the house, the lookout outside told the bus driver "the kid already left for school." How fucked up is that?
