Don't know if this is a sign of the times, i.e., the recession, but there seems to be a lot of theft going on out there according to Carol Clark's blog. Including some nifty bikes. One valued at $6k. Better lock up your ride.
It would not surprise me if we had a rash of thefts up here, although I don't actually know if there are more going on than usual. Lots of well paid people up here in a sea of want.
