[UPDATE]: Good Lord, it’s a tradition.
Milwaukee’s Department of Public Works is reporting a series of thefts on the city’s north side. Someone is stealing manhole covers and sewer grates, and neighbors suspect the motive to be monetary.
(Via POWIP) Well, you know this: whoever is steeling this stuff is in good shape. Probably pumps iron. On the positive side, cases like this really test the metal of coppers; on the negative side, these sorts of cases have a magnetic effect on imitators. And then there’s the way that crimes like these can rust away community standards of living…
OK, I’ll stop now.
