carjacking update

Family’s okay. Car is clean(ish). Criminal is in jail (for the time being).

[EDIT: redacted some links to newspaper stories about the situation. Better safe than sorry. There’ll likely be a wrap-up post when/if the thing gets settled.]

Looks like the guy’s well on his way to being a drug-addled career criminal and should have been in jail Monday instead of terrorizing my family. Hopefully they can get him convicted and put in prison before he hurts anyone else.

a brief intermission

My wife and two-year-old son were carjacked today. They weren’t harmed, just terrorized. The police caught the guy, but we still don’t know exactly what happened and may not for a while. It could have been MUCH MUCH worse. Everyone’s okay, though.

So, needless to say, I’ve got other priorities right this second other than blogging. I know some people are waiting on the edge of their seats for the next installment of 30 Days of Burning Wheel, but it might be a few days before I finish any of the several pieces I’ve started. [EDIT: I meant that last sentence to be at least mildly amusing (since I’m sure NO ONE is actually waiting on the edge of his seat!), but I can see how that got buried under the otherwise grave tone of the post. Sorry about that.] I’ll get back to it as soon as I can, though. Thanks. And remember to lock your car doors at all times, people.
