My how times have changed....

This morning as I was going to work, I stopped at the Marathon station at the rt. 94 intersection of I-76 in Wadsworth. I was getting my morning paper. I parked in front of the store and I saw this young lady go in before me. I was getting a paper. She was getting a cup of coffee and a donut. As I was getting ready to leave, I noticed her unlocking her car. I bring this up because I remember when I was young and when I would go to Lawson's with one of my parents for bread and milk we would go in and leave the car running with the door unlocked and not think about it. Now people stop in Wadsworth, of all places and they don't feel safe enough to leave their car unlocked when they go into a convenience store and their car is within sight while their in the store.

Sad when you think about it.

It is a very bad world now. I am only 33 and when I was a kid at most if you got into a fight, might get a black eye or bloddy nose or something nowadays kids would rather shoot someone than fight like men (or women)
