SHORT TAKES ON THE DRIFTING WRECKAGE – OVERNIGHT:

NEW YORK – ON THE FRONT LINE OF NATIONAL DEFENSE – FROM THE NEW YORK POST:  About 400 used bulletproof vests that were supposed to be donated to Ukraine were stolen sometime overnight from a nonprofit organization in Manhattan, police said Wednesday. The vests were being stored at 203 Second Ave. near 12th Street in the East Village and were slated to be sent to the country that has been under siege by Russian forces since Feb. 24.  Somebody called 911 after discovering the heist at 9:19 a.m., police said.  When cops arrived, they found someone had forced their way into the building, police said. The vests were being stored in a hallway and were “visible to the public,” a police source said. The used vests were donated by the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office, a police source said. The sheriff’s office said they were looking into the report. The Ukrainian Congress Committee of America and the Ukrainian National Women’s League of America are both listed at the Manhattan address. And if the NYPD catches the perp? This bein' New York, he'll be walking the streets again in about ten minutes Makes you feel more secure, doesn't it?
