A brand-new black 2013 Mercedes-Benz S.U.V. is the latest luxury car stolen overnight around Wainscott this summer. Its owner, Marisa Cicco of New York City, called East Hampton Town police on the morning of Aug. 6 to report the theft.
The Mercedes had been parked in her driveway on Westwood Road the night before. It was purchased six weeks earlier for a reported $180,000.
It was a world of disconnection through over-connection that Ray Bradbury foresaw in his 1953 short story “The Murderer.” A world in which people’s ears were filled with music as they walked through their days, staying in moment-to-moment communication through their phones with their job, their friends, their lovers, their families. Connected, yet isolated from the world around them.
