If anyone wants to borrow a very scary looking but secretly lovable pit bull when they go for runs - he's always down for more than his dad can give him, and we're not too far away from the trail. You just have to give him back.

Fair warning though, if actual trouble happens he is a giant pansy, unless that trouble involves other dogs. He's more of a deterrent with nothing to back it up, like one of those ADT signs in the yard when you don't actually have the system.

Warning to all

Yet another armed robbery on the Metropolitan Branch Trail last week in broad daylight at 3:15 p.m. on Wednesday.

This comes after June's sexual assault on a woman, again in broad daylight at Noon on a Monday, and a robbery a week later where the victim was riding a bike.

The point has been made that the more people who use the trail, the safer it would be, but it seems that we are really, really far from that tipping point. Its so unfortunate as the trail could be an excellent resource.

I think there were actually two assaults on the same day, back in June.
