Safer in London than Gtown

I've been a little blog crazy today, but this could be interesting for family readers. My parents worry about me walking around London in the dark. Mind you... the sun sets at 4PM nowadays so it's inevitable. But here's an email from the Department of Public Safety at Georgetown. I would just like to point out that it was 6PM.
