>Twilight robbery

>

We live in a fairly low crime suburban neighbourhood in the South of England. Still, this didn’t stop someone making off with our pumpkin jack o’lantern from the house during the course of Halloween night. A backhanded compliment to my pumpkin carving skills I suppose – it was stolen, after all, not trashed – but downright infuriating nevertheless. After all, an Englishman’s pumpkin is his castle. Seems to be another social problem imported from the US – YouTube is full of irate videos like this – and at least one US jury is deadlocked over the issue of whether the right to defend yourself and your home extends to blowing a pumpkin thief away with a deadly weapon. No doubt Barack Obama will improve things along with the rest of the world situation when he gets elected tonight.
