Good Samaritans - thank you for being willing to get involved BUT what if it had been something more deadly than pepper spray. Safety is more important than purses

Samantha, in order to deride criminals for being stupid, one must use correct spelling and grammar. I did enjoy "ghettoes" and "rampant up"...right out of the Dubya playbook!

Ah Lili---"Dubya"? A liberal pinko shows her colors! Right out of the "blame Bush" collective. Gotta love Bill Ayers and Comrade Barry.

I love that I got called a Communist because I pointed out Samantha's terrible spelling. It always turns into something political with you Alamo old-timers. Thanks for the chuckle!
