I’m disturbed and saddened that somebody felt the need on Sept.

effectively $30 a pop. Not to mention my business records and
job-hunting tools such as resumes and cover letters.
I’m dismayed that somebody is so self-centered that they would
feel the need to steal such a lowly item. Would that perpetrator
appreciate it if somebody erased his or her thesis work from the
public directories, or stole their FlashDrive with important exam
notes on it?

find it odd that in a place where people are obviously moneyed, or
they wouldn’t be at CSU, that somebody has to stoop to thievery of

looking for it periodically, and if I see my equipment, the
perpetrator will be arrested and I will be looking for monetary
compensation for any lost files. Not only will there be judicial
liability, but as an electronics consultant and software developer,
I charge thirty dollars an hour, do excellent pro-se legal work,
and some files had hundreds of hours of work on them. Spending the
measly $40 at Wal-Mart is really the way to go, folks, rather than
