So, there's been a string of break-ins in my neighborhood the past couple weeks. I was talking to one of the victimized neighbors and they said that according to the cops, the best thing to do is to buy a gun. "Yeah, buy a gun and if they're running away when you shoot them, just drag them back into your house." And mind you the cop was telling this to a guy who he could see had children living in the house. Grrr....

We've decided to go with the slightly more expensive, but far less lethal approach of leaving our back yard light on at night (they've been coming into houses from the back alleys).

I've also considered going to the pet store and buying an oversized doggie water bowl and leaving it by the back door.
