Editor, Index-Tribune:

To the thug who helped himself to my backyard patio last night to steal my newly-delivered, 46-inch, Samsung TV, I want you to know it was a gift for my 83-year-old, wheelchair-bound client, who is suffering with MS. She watches TV all day long and has an old one from the 1980’s. I was so excited to give her this gift, and I am sure it would have been more appreciated by her than whatever you are planning on trading it for.

Shame on you. It takes a heartless person to steal a Christmas gift from a neighbor during this special holiday of giving.
