Who says government never makes itself useful? From liberal Oakland, where citizens have given up on the police and now patrol the streets themselves, comes government guidance on how to learn useful skills:
The mayor of a California city struggling with a spike in burglaries and other crimes is apologizing for promoting a class about how to pick locks in her newsletter. …
The Oakland Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/WsyCqq) that the class — offered through the website, workshopweekend.net — was geared toward people who misplace their keys. But it didn’t go over well with some residents given the city’s crime woes, including a more-than 40 percent jump in burglaries last year.
Hold on, Oakland. A big enough earthquake to put you out of your misery is sure to come along sooner or later.
