SAMPLING SOUTH ASIA
Driving home from a hard night's,
work last week, I pulled up to my
Packard -Street house around 3 a.m.
Pitch black outside and hours away
from sunrise, I figured no one else
would be walking around outside.
I was wrong.
My seven-pound Maltese, sitting

barking hysterically at a man who'd
approached my window.
"I'll pay you for a ride to Meijer,"
the man said. A slew of bags filled
with aluminum cans were slung over
After politely declining his offer.
he walked away - or so I thought.
Minutes later I saw him riding away
on a bike, still holding every one
of his bags, in the direction of the.
Leaving West Park on. Saturday
night, some friends and I found chat
one of our bikes had been stolen.
Though the bike was unlocked, we
still felt wronged by the residents of
our quiet and serene Ann Arbor.
Soon after, weonmet awoman named
Janet, who appeared to be both a
neighborhood watchdog and a crazy
lady not wearingashoes.
Janet assured us she would find our
bike, and told us to wait on that street
corner and she return riding that blue
Huffy like a knight in shining armor.
She returned after less than a
minute and told us to wait with the
other college kids she found nearby.
We ended up on a porch with some
students drinking PBRs. Janet never
came back, buttI saw her later riding a
blue Huffy - still sans shoes.
