Part of the change, is because years ago, most homes had someone around. Now people move out to the country, and work 8-5 jobs, leaving their houses unattended. It is weird that I got robbed, because I never stray too far from home. My farm is 1 mile from my house by truck, and 6/10 mile by the way the crow flies. I can see my house, if I want too. I am normally at home, at the time this probably occurred. I was delayed yesterday. I am not the kind of person this dude would have wanted to mess with. Normally if someone I don't want to talk to comes to the door, I ignore them. I don't want to be bothered. Had he decided to break in then, he would have caught a bullet.
