Robbed in Broad Daylight

As an update to "How Friendly is America?" my own purse was snatched today outside of my local grocery store around one o'clock on a Sunday afternoon. It must have happened while loading my car with groceries. What a shock! Hasn't happened before..."this is a safe area."

"It seems like now, since the economy has changed, [thieves] are getting a little bit more sophisticated and a little more brazen" says this current article from CNN about crime.

The economy has gotten so bad it's just a sign of the times that someone needed to spirit away my valuables, including my driver's licence, credit and bank cards, a cellphone. Really rattled me, but I guess the silver lining is that it could have happened in a worse place. I wasn't hurt physically and I was easily rescued by my family and the police.

If the perp is reading this, I hope he/she leaves a comment, to put it politely. That was so wrong. For shame.
