You snooze, you lose

Dear Editor,

While Paula Lauris offers some good advice about how and where to nap during the day (“Catch Some ZZZ’s”, Oct. 6), she neglects to tell her readers that they should, before falling asleep, take the elementary precaution of securing their belongings. Recent years’ dorm room burglaries taught us to lock doors; let’s obviate a similar spate of sleeping-student thefts before it starts.
