So, did everyone hear the one about the genius in Port St. Lucie Florida who left his car unlocked with a loaded 40 caliber pistol and a throwing knife inside?  A "burglar" came along and "broke into" the car taking the gun and knife.  The owner of the car, the gun and the knife is not out anything since the "thief" left the gun, sans bullets, and knife in a bag by the owner's back door.  There were messages on the the bag.  On one side was written "LOADED GUN UNLOCKED CAR = STUPID.  One the other side was written "LOTS OF CHILDREN IN AREA".  Investigating officer Sgt. Frank Sabol noted that the person responsible could face charges included armed burglarly and theft.  The owner remarked for the TV cameras that he had been distracted recently which is why he left the car unlocked.  Sgt. Sabol wisely observed “If you take away the opportunity and if you take away the items, then you pretty much eliminate the crime, if the gun wasn’t in the car, if the car was locked, then this crime wouldn’t have occurred.”  Two of the 3 characters in this story don't seem to contribute a lot of positive genes to the pool.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
