I heard a story from someone at IBM that one of the salesman got his
briefcase stolen when he was over there. He notified the authorities
and a few weeks later he gets his briefcase back in the mail with a
hand in it, the hand of the guy that stole it. I guess that stuff
really happens over there. Probably cuts down on the theft problem
quite a bit....
