this sucks

Over at In Shaw, Mari notes that the neighborhood has been seeing a significant increase in crime — one that I was oblivious to prior to my bike getting taken yesterday. But looking through the Logan Circle Yahoo Group archives for the past week is discouraging. Some of the robberies were at gunpoint; several happened with bystanders present. With Catherine (and now my bike) gone, I find myself walking around alone a lot more than before. Maybe I'll take some time at lunch to gmail myself all my credit card info, and the phone numbers I would have to call to cancel them.

Also: turns out there is a reason for the city's bike registration system — but it just doesn't have anything to do with getting back stolen property. Citypaper article here.

Sorry to fixate on all of this. I could write a post explaining what terrible, terrible people you all are for having the day off from work, but I'm not sure you'd enjoy it as much as I would.

I would enjoy it. Especially if you mentioned Metro being slow as balls today, too.

Dude, don't give Google your credit card info! They're evil and stuff!

Hmm. Good point. Maybe I'll put it through PGP first.

Wouldn't it be easier just to photocopy the fronts and backs of all of your cards? That's what I do twice a year. If you really want a digital copy, you could fax it to yourself or scan it.

Nah. gmail is the only thing I can be counted on not to lose. Plus I'm in a strange office where the copier is a vast a terrifying unknown (and one that charges every copy to a customer).
