    Half of the libs down there are trying to figure out what Northern Cal. rock he climbed out from under, and the other half are trying to figure out how to get him back there.

    He may well be a very capable engineer. I am not too sure how smart he is however!

    As for the city attorney, his advice was appropriate before they laid off 80 officers. It will still be appropriate if they hire back 280 officers. Everybody is responsible for their own safety, if the police get there in time to help, great!.

    ah, but the lack of damage to his car is valuable to me. There was a rash of vehicle break-in's at an apartment complex I used to live in. They busted windows in both of my neighbor's cars. I drove around for 4 months without a CD player, but I wasn't scrambling to replace glass or fighting rain with a tarp. That's my take on it. Glass ain't gonna keep anybody out, and cars have too much glass to be secure. I'd rather replace my stuff than my windows, so I don't lock my truck. Personal preference I suppose, whatever floats your boat.

    The towns where both of my grandparents lived were like that. They would leave the garage door open all day when my grandfathers left for work or whereever, with all kinds of tools, etc. in plain sight, and no one would bother them! If you tried that in Gary, everything would have disappeared within an hour--at most! They also left money in the milk bottles for the milk man, and money under the welcome mat for the paperboy. In Gary, not only would the money have been stolen, but the milk bottles too!

    Unfortunately, this guy has decided to be a victim. Not much further that can be done for this person.
