Stranger Danger

Stranger Danger

I don’t want to belittle the real risks of stranger danger, but it is known that:

the number of so-called “stranger” killings of children in England and Wales has remained stable for about 30 years ...
[And] it skews the public debate away from the area of greatest risk to children, which has always been the home and those relationships forged in innocence, with baby-sitters, teachers, sports coaches and so on.

(from BBC article from 2002).

The other immediate thing that came to mind when looking at the sign above was: “Why the dog”?

Meanwhile, with reminders of a schoolboy joke, the rings around Uranus are currently aligned with earth - a once every 42 year event.
