beware the ides of may (and the calends, and the nones, and the...)

I'm off in Chicago on a bidness trip, but our block captain just sent me news about an attack this morning in the other Land of Lincoln, plus some Suspicious Activity.

• At about 5:10am, there was an attempted sexual assault on a woman on the 400 block of Pasadena St., and the bulletin claimed that there have been other incidents of a man following women in the neighbborhood.

• A white BMW and a white Lincoln Navigator have made a habit of loitering at the corner of Alvarado and Palomares, looking like they are up to no good and being hostile to neighbors.

Be careful out there, people!
