Letter: Riff-raff adjusting to harsh winters?

An article in Thursday’s Forum (March 21) highlighted the 153 percent increase in assaults and burglaries in Moorhead from 2011 to 2012.

That headline reminds me of a story the old-timers in our area used to tell. The point of their story was that no matter how long or how cold our winters are, there’s one good thing that can be said about them: At least the weather keeps the riff-raff out.

Judging by the content of the article, the riff-raff have learned to enjoy our cold winters.
