Security conscious Americans entrust the most vital security task of all to amateurs
By Don Hank
Americans are funny critters. Many of us are very fussy about safety, as we should be. Most of us are careful to avoid smoking and excessive drinking; we get our exercise, watch our diet, get our check ups, etc, When it comes to our homes, very few of us would leave home with the door unlocked. Most want good fire protection and police services in their neighborhoods and many will organize neighborhood watches to protect themselves from crime and drugs. And we watch our kids to make sure they are doing their homework, not falling into drugs, etc.
