There are some people who should never be allowed to mingle in decent society and this convicted killer is one of them. This world is a safer place with him locked up for life.

My mother, who grew up in Baltimore, made darn sure her kids had a healthy dose of paranoia before we left home. We always lock our doors and windows--all of them--even when we're home. We live in a fairly safe neighborhood in Sandy, but I think a lot of Utah neighborhoods are magnets for felons, because we're (collectively) so happy, dumb, and naive.

A recent article about the woman who was raped by a door-to-door salesman is testimony enough to how crucial it is to have good street--and home--sense.

Could Magda's tragic death have been prevented? Possibly. I just know that, with two kids of my own and a third on the way, I don't want to take any chances that could leave me dying of gunshot wounds in my own home.
