Atlanta.... this place is teaming hive of scum and villainy. If you add up all the nightly crime and traffic fatalities, you'd think this city was part of the Sunni triangle. :S
Last week, hostile natives pried open a bunch of the mail package lockers and opened our incoming packages. Fortunately, they didn't want any of our incoming crap.
And...this is in one of the best apartment complexes in one of the best neighborhoods here. A place where the grounds are immaculate and the where the gate always works and always slams down on any car trying to tail you in.
Now the complex has put out a flier letting us know about a burglary and advising people to be on alert for suspicious people, to be careful walking alone, walk with keys in hand, etc., etc.
It's almost enough to make me ask - What's the best large caliber handgun for astronomy? But, there's no way I'm bringing heat every time I go observing. Lawyers are more expensive than muggers anyway. And...I'm not driving two hours each way to work or to go observing. Grrrrr....it makes me mad. :C Sometimes I wish Canada would just invade us and restore order! 8)
