CRIMINALS READING THIS WEBLOG, PLEASE CHECK IN . . . Back in the old days, I used to report ahead of time on Legal Underground about when I'd be going out of town. Not only did this give a sense of immediacy to the weblog, but it gave me a chance to meet some interesting people for breakfast or lunch. (Readers and webloggers who emailed after reading about a trip, that is.)
At some point, however, my wife Andrea, who is apparently suspicious of people who read weblogs, said I had to stop announcing when I'd be out of town. She said that to do so would leave the family alone in the house at the mercy of the next Legal Underground reader who also happens to be a burglar hoping for an easy score.
I can't say I have the same concerns. On the other hand, I'm not the one who's left at home alone.
Silly, or not?
Anyway, as a bit of market research, I'd appreciate it if any criminals who are reading this weblog would please identify themselves in the comments. At least then we can get a handle on how many of you there are.
