I have no solution, but this has got to stop. When I walk, it is with two fairly large dogs. I can only imagine what would happen if someone were to attack me, as the dogs are extremely protective.

You should start a Citizens On Patrol - COPs - group, Richard.

This is probably the most worthwhile thought you have posted.

Sadly, it was not an original idea. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0093756/

For some reason that does not surprise me, but my remark still stands.

Sad that one has to walk around with big dogs or a big gun to be safe in some Heights neighborhoods.

You point out the obvious, but we are not supposed to say anything about it. It is the same thing in the schools. We are not supposed to say that parents are not doing their job, just vote for more levies and new buildings. Phooey.

I sent four daughters through Fairfax - deemed to be an awfyl building - Rox Middle, and Heights High. They all turned out okay. I also, however, went to open houses, conferences, meetings, field trips, concerts, swim meets and other events. I feel that if I hadn't participated, my daughters might have thought that I simply did not care. Not so.
