A warning to all newspaper thieves

I walked outside to the driveway this morning and I was greeted by a rather amusing surprise. Usually they just use that strong, translucent, threadlike plastic-y band to keep the pages of the newspaper together. On rainy days, they add in a plastic slip cover to prevent water damage to the paper. But today was the first time I'd seen it: a third level of added security! I was amazed and even a little cautious, taking a couple looks around me before picking it up even though it was my paper. Ultimately I now feel much safer and more secure in knowing that my morning papers will no longer be stolen.
