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.
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.
