Strange days have found us
Strange days have tracked us down

The peeve: When strangers try to break in, call, trespass or nap in a car not their own, it can be a crime . . . though that doesn’t make them or the vehicle strange.

 A copy editing nitpick, perhaps . . . and a language misdemeanor worth citing.
