Do you think that Hazel will come clean w/the deets after her DH's court appearance on the 29th? I could see where she doesn't want to jeopardize his case...</p>

Oh my. I don't know who this Hazel person is, but I sure hope for her dh's sake that she knows a good attorney!

And if any city in this here nation would ever be a place where someone could go unnoticed running through the downtown city streets with a stolen bucket seat out of a Chrysler, Detroit is it. And even if my make and model were targeted due to the fact that I have such a lockbox, it would be quite a gamble.

Begin the love fest. B/c I love me some Marla. And FTR, better to live in a high crime area than a high crime household, am I right? Of course I am!

Well, back to why I don't watch soap operas. Enough needless drama and train wrecks right here.

Oh! That is what that question was asking. I read it twice and asked myself, "Soap Opera's what?" and couldn't figure out the answer. Stupid booksmarts.

I've got the underseat lockbox and when I travel for work to big cities, I often lock my crap in there rather than carry it because I feel like I'm at risk for being mugged and my ID/credit cards/emergency cash are probably safer locked in the car under the seat than they are in my purse on my arm. I hardly ever carry anything other than the key to my hotel room, the key to the lock box, and a small amount of cash with me when I am out at night alone.

And I do. And I'm not providing you w/any more information. B/c I don't need your creepy, cross country stalking. 

No, not interested in stalking, unlike others :)

Yeah, Welcome to the "Land of Needless Quotation Marks and Random Apostrophe's.". Round these parts, quotation marks are used for emphasis rather than irony, and the function of an apostrophe is to let you know that the letter "s" is coming up.

Did you see the rankings of states?

Where is the crime rates you posted on that site. I must have missed it as I do not see them.
