Suburban Safety

I never thought I’d be sitting here in west Philadelphia writing a warning e-mail to my friends in infamously affluent suburban Lower Merion. Township Supervisor Bruce Reed released a letter warning residents of a rash of recent armed car jackings, one of which took place at my friends’ apartment building! I am very surprised they’ve been able to get away with this in a township with such a reputation for safety. I wonder if this will push people to move further up the main line as the two locations of the car jackings were not that far from the city line.

For anyone concerned, please see here for tips on how to avoid and handle a car jacking situation:

    Word. The real Main Line has moved to Chester County. All that is left of the old Main Line is the essence of old money and the newly rich.
