Dear PoP – “What kind of punk steals a little kid’s wagon??”

“Dear PoP,

Just hoping the PoP crowd can keep an eye out for my kid’s wagon. Radio Flyer All-Terrain model, red, with wood top rails and big tires. It was swiped off my porch in Columbia Heights (near Holmead) on Saturday sometime between grocery shopping (6pm) and bedtime (9pm). I’m hoping some kids took it for a joyride and ditched it somewhere. Yes, I know, it’s probably already been sold for drug money. And yes, I know, I shouldn’t leave anything out that’s not nailed down. I was lulled into a false sense of security by the fact that my porch furniture, stroller, and garden implements have always stayed put. Thanks for the extra eyes.”

I once saw one of these locked up and found it curious. It’s a sad state of affairs that these have to be locked up like a bicycle. If anyone happens to spot this one please email me and I’ll put you in contact with the reader.
