Being from Cincinnati, I have the same reaction.

heathen wrote:Talking about things missing from cars reminds me of a funny story. A local neighborhood was often missing things from their cars and sometimes different things were found instead. This went on for months. Turns out a little kid about 5 years old would open people's cars and take whatever he found, keys, sun glasses, etc. He would then go to the next car and take whatever he found and leave what he took out of the last car. I think because his hands were so small, he could only carry so much and would save the newest treasures he found. He ended up taking my mother-in-law's landlord's truck keys. A neighbor happened to see the little kid in his truck and the police were able to track him down. Mystery solved.
