This is too good to pass up.
We have a neighborhood crime watch program on our street. Forty-five households are on the roster, each assigned a week to randomly patrol the area in the morning and again in the nighttime. The county police provide support, including a small red bag with sundry equipment - flashlight, reflective vest, forms, that sort of thing. The bag is passed from house to house in accordance with the patrol schedule. Guess what came up missing? You're right - somebody stole the crime watch bag. Since it is passed from house to house, this was clearly an inside job. Can you believe it - one of the crime watcher's stole the bag. How's that for something to bolster your confidence in the program? As for me, I am starting my own program - "Watch out for the Crime Watch Patrol. They may be out to steal your car."
