The one where people take what doesn't belong to them

So, some random thief in the night broke into Katie's car and tried to steal her radio. They/he/she were/was not successful, and some might cheer such a twist in the story where the trouble-making loser isn't rewarded. But the story doesn't end so well for Katie either. Whatever jamoke was trying to pry the stereo out of the car couldn't dislodge the damn thing thanks to the toughness of Toyota products and the expert installation from the fine folks at Tweeter. In the process, the head unit was damaged beyond usefulness and some serious scars were left in the padded dash surrounding the radio. In short, they didn't get the radio, but they caused so much damage in the process that the car needs some serious attention.

The neighbors are crying for better illumination in the parking lots and more patrols. It is a waste of time. The condo board was refused to take this seriously and people are getting ripped off left and right. Tsk Tsk. It's all kinda sad.

Et tu, Danny?

When I planned to create my own Web presence, I wanted to have a side column where people could read my random thoughts and gain some insight on my comings and goings. When my friend Janet showed me her recently-resurrected Bog I decided this would be an ideal way to accomplish this. Eventually, I would like to have this feature more deeply integrated into my personal Web page. But for the time being, this site is a great way for me to get this idea up and running. If you'd like to comment, please feel free.

What is a Blog?

Definitions of Blog -- (weB LOG) on the Web
according to Matisse Enzer’s Glossary of Internet Terms:

A blog is basically a journal that is available on the web. The activity of updating a blog is "blogging" and someone who keeps a blog is a "blogger." Blogs are typically updated daily using software that allows people with little or no technical background to update and maintain the blog. Postings on a blog are almost always arranged in cronological order with the most recent additions featured most prominantly.
