We are very happy about the low criminality rates in our district! One might run into an occasional con man and once in a while there is a marijuana plantation that needs to be dismantled, but when all is said and done it does not amount to much.
However, this morning I found out that we might have cause for concern. At the tobacconist’s newspapers often get stolen. One of the clients in the shop said that her newspaper is stolen from her letterbox on a regular basis. Obviously our neighbourhood is teeming with newspaper thieves!
Well, we might take this phenomenon as an indication of a high grade of literacy. And isn’t that something we can be happy about?
