Trying to Muster up the Tears...

Really and truly, I am, I am. Promise! From the New York Post:
Thieves preying on fellow protesters

It’s a den of thieves!

Occupy Wall Street protesters said yesterday that packs of brazen crooks within their ranks have been robbing their fellow demonstrators blind, making off with pricey cameras, phones and laptops -- and even a hefty bundle of donated cash and food.

“Stealing is our biggest problem at the moment,” said Nan Terrie, 18, a kitchen and legal-team volunteer from Fort Lauderdale.

“I had my Mac stolen -- that was like $5,500. Every night, something else is gone. Last night, our entire [kitchen] budget for the day was stolen, so the first thing I had to do was . . . get the message out to our supporters that we needed food!”
Not to worry, missy, no doubt your Mac was covered under mommy and daddy's homeowner's policy, although $5500 seems awfully high for a Mac. You wouldn't be tempted to claim it was worth more than they paid for it, would you? That'd be theft, dontcha know.
