Not that mine has, knock on wood. But when I read on the Des Moines Register’s Web site that burglars broke into the home of one of their public safety reporters, Nigel Duara, to steal his car keys and take his vehicle, I had to wonder…why is that any more important than when Joe Smith’s house down the street is broken into? Unless they left a note on Nigel’s fridge reading, “This is what you get for putting our names in the paper, you yuppie scum,” I don’t think it is.

Hmmm. I suppose it is slightly interesting. He is my competition, after all…anyway, you can bet that if my house gets broken into, I won’t tell you about it. At least until I track down the people who did it and crack them in the head with an ice pick.
