Bike Thieves in South Bend

Grr...I'm so annoyed. Some jerk stole my bike helmet tonight, along with my friend's rear light and sack. And they also tried to steal this other guy's wheel from his bike. The nerve! Prior to this discovery, my friend Jackie and I attended a jazz concert near my house. It was a fun, certainly a nice diversion from writing academic papers. But really! Why are there people out there willing to take what clearly does not belong to them?? (This is rhetorical questions, folks!)

It just peeves me. So now, I'm going to have to *drive* to the local bike shop to purchase a new helmet. While I'm there, I'll pick up some other items that I'm sure these thieves would want to add to their collection.

Now when I'm riding my bike, I'll be keeping an eye for someone who's sporting a pink helmet!

Wow, we both are having awful luck when it comes to getting things taken from us. My camera, your helmet.

Admittedly, it would be amusing to see the same guy who stole my camera sporting your helmet!

It's just unbelievable when it happens to you, you know? Sadly, I wonder if the crime rate is going to get worse, thanks to a worsening economy. Desperate people do desperate things. Of course, I wouldn't be surprised if this jerk was an idle teenager.
