Hi, Timothy! My name is Kirstin Fawcett, and I'm a journalism student at Northwestern University covering the crime beat in the Northwest Side. I'd love to interview you for a story, as I read your blog on a regular basis and enjoy its contents. My email is Is there a preferred way to contact you?

I got this directly from the Assistant Manager at the Fullerton Salvation Army - there was NO robbery. I spoke with him this evening after reading your blog yesterday.
Apparently, it was some sort of "test" or something. I shop there every week, so I'm glad to know that never happened.

Undergrounded, just wrote the calls. I didn't get any other information from the "incident", so I was assuming it was unfounded anyway. Either way, I'm glad to know nothing happened there.

Hi Kirstin :). I'm going to email you today or tomorrow regarding the interview. Sorry I haven't gotten back to you yet, but I've been busy.
