Glad you enjoyed it! I thought it was a neat segment and apparently it's a series. I did chuckle quite a bit at her dad's dire prediction which was dead wrong. Though the crate of diaries! I wish I'd had that kind of dedication.

I was really amused with her dad the scientist SO sure that the liberal arts weren't worthwhile!

This is so cool...I clicked on the link and started the first story, The Northampton Robbery. Northampton MA is only about 15 miles from here. Apparently, these ruffians performed a home invasion of the residence of the bank's manager. I didn't realize that practice went back so far.

I went to school at MHC so I admit that the location is totally the reason I picked this one up! They didn't give any detail on the bank though, so I can't tell if it's one that's still around or not. (I was hoping they'd mention more about the town, or other places that I'd recognize.)

And wow, I didn't realize that this could so totally fit into the home invasion thing - but you're right. In fact this is a scenario I remember reading about in several bank robbery stories (or maybe movies, I can't remember) from different time periods - I guess kidnapping the manager was a really old idea.
