Gee, I'm Glad I Still Have My Big, Fat Tube TV


Why's that? Because there's been another smash-and-grab burglary targeting flat-panel televisions.

Last night thieves made off with several flat-panel tellys from the National Rent-To-Own on Halls Ferry in north St. Louis.

Since last September there have been at least fifteen similar burglaries in the City of St. Louis. And that's not counting a string of similar thefts in the county.

Makes my old cathrode-ray-tube television look pretty damn attractive these days. Now if I could only get the #!&%@ digital converter to work.
