Court pardons smitten bra burglar

Nothing special on the news today. Sharon's party grows like a black hole, sucking up all the matter around that is not tied up carefully, Iranian pres' verbal incontinence does not abate (maybe a muzzle would help), etc. The weather in Israel is something the elders (not the Elders) do not remember since ...er ...whatever.

China, however, brings a refreshing breath of air. CNN tells a heartbreaking story.

A Chinese man who repeatedly broke into the home of a neighbor he secretly loved, at one point sneaking out with a bra and some photos, has been let off the hook by a Chinese court, Xinhua news agency said on Tuesday.

Police caught him red-handed in November walking out of the neighbor's apartment with a key to her door, a bra, two photographs and her MP3 player...

But the court in Harbin, capital of northeastern Heilongjiang province, dismissed harassment charges against the burglar. It heard that on the times he entered the woman's apartment while she was out, he had washed her dishes, done her laundry, left her snacks and even fixed her computer.

Some people have all the luck. But the beloved one is in need of an urgent consultation on the best way to behave toward that shlimazel. We talked with our Elders' marriage counselor (of course, she is aptly named Ruth), and here it comes:

Listen, dear: the price of a simple bra in China is not high, and what with the rates and the quality of nowadays house help, it makes a perfect economic sense to buy the bras by the bushel and continue the business as it is right now. Make sure he gets one for every housekeeping operation, and everything will be peachy.

The most important thing: in no eventuality marry this guy! The moment you do so, he will stop any housekeeping activities.

I know. I have stopped.

My friend and I were recently talking about how modern society has evolved to become so integrated with technology. Reading this post makes me think back to that debate we had, and just how inseparable from electronics we have all become.

I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Societal concerns aside... I just hope that as technology further develops, the possibility of copying our brains onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's one of the things I really wish I could encounter in my lifetime.
