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."
