When John and I watched the local Oxford broadcast of the BBC News at 6:30 this evening, we noted a report about the communities in the UK which have the highest and the lowest burglary rates. Here's the story, on the BBC's website
We were saddened to hear that Oxford is now #5 on the most-burgled list. That's even ahead of London.
But, in contrast, the place where John grew up, Swindon, is #5 on the UK's least-burgled communities list.
We suspect it's because burglars think that most Swindonians have little in their houses worth stealing.
(Ooooohhhhh...that's a little mean...sorry! I guess I'm still bitter about getting those nachos at a Swindon restaurant...the ones with whipped cream
on top instead of sour cream! And to make matters worse, the waiter responded to my objection by telling us that "The chef knows what he is doing!"...)
