reading the glasgow papers on a daily basis, I get the distinct impression that there are ARMIES of heavily-armed heroin-addicted perverts waiting to do me a disservice around every corner.... but in 20 full years of wandering, often drunk and insensible to threat, round the city at god knows when in the morning, I've never once been the victim of a felony. I don't recall even being threatened, at least, not since school. Am I a) very very lucky? b) very very scarey looking when I am drunk? c) in the majority who travel the city quite safely, but still fall for the media hype about the 'murder capital of Europe'?
