RE: Bad guys, good guys, morons, 100LS cheap [no Audi content]

The day I picked up my S4, I cam back to find that my three-pointed star on
my wife's Merc. had been yanked, damaging the hood in the process. I asked
the Merc. newsgroup for suggestions (removable stars, flush covering plates,
etc.), and one guy had a truly wonderful answer, which he claimed to have
used, with success:

"take the star to a local knife shop, and get them to put a real sharp edge
on it, under the surface it's  good enough to make razor blades out of"

That way, rather than coming out in the morning to see if the star's
missing, I only have to come out and look for blood on the hood, and a
bandage on the hand of one of my neighbor's kids.

BTW, Chris (OK, uncontrollable rage precludes this kind of patience), if you
had the license plate of the truck that did that, couldn't you have bided
your time and repaid him more safely with interest? Discovering a home
address from a license plate isn't _that_ difficult... That said, if someone
keys the S4 and I find them, I may change my opinion of the Brady Bill...
