  1. A few years back there was a gang house in our neighborhood. One night someone tried to break into our house by prying open a front window, but my two dobermans happened to be sleeping near the window.

    The perp took off and I called the police. When the police arrived we followed the tracks in the fresh snow to the front door of the gang house.

    The police said they couldn’t do anything, and listed off a whole bunch of potential excuses the suspects would use that would evade charges.

    Good thing they caught this person out in the open.

  2. Wow, I’ve never before felt pleased about anything to do with my local McD’s, but I guess there’s a first time for everything! (Or perhaps the helper was from Gorditas el Gordo? I guess you could call that fast food too…) At any rate, good for the person who helped that kid.
