What Is This World Coming To?


[Here is another installment of the weird news in our local paper. I think that the headline below says it all. Never mind the loss of the wallet; what kind of society do we live in where even peoples' pants are no longer safe. ~cn]

Thief snatches wallet, pant leg from victim
A man reportedly lost his wallet and the back of his pant leg on his way back from getting the mail Thursday evening, when a robber charged him and made a grab for his pocket, Athens-Clarke police said. The man said he had just reached the porch of his Clover Street home shortly after 5:45 p.m., when the robber, wearing a bandanna over his face and camouflage pants, ran toward him, police said. The robber knocked him down and tore off the back of his pants while grabbing for his wallet, police said. Officers checked around the man's house for the suspect, and found that someone had knocked down a section of fence in the backyard, according to police.

What is going on in this world? My mother always said to wear clean underwear in case I had a car accident, but now I have to in case I am mugged as well?

Cathy, do you think that he's best buds with the guy that kept going back and stealing beer from that guy? Maybe they need the pant leg as a sort of beer back pack?
