I Think Most People Are At A Loss

I think most people are at a loss as to how to stop this. I wish they would change the law, so that the A/C units could be booby-trapped. A couple of electrocutions might slow this thing down. In any case, the thieves when caught, should be forced to pay full restitution to the victims. I'm afraid that now that school is out, we may see more of this stuff being done to schools. They have already cleaned out Regency Mall.

There’s a Hole in the Ozone

When they cut the copper tubing, they released dozens of pounds of freon that will enlarge the hole in the ozone, and thousands of world citizens will get skin cancer. Should Obamacare pay for the treatment?
