Quintessential Liberal Idiot Gets Robbed
Here in MN, Garrison Keillor's bookstore "Common Good" got robbed. Keillor had made a big deal about how he trusts his "neighbors" and didn't need elaborate security (though he doesn't trust them enough to leave cash laying on the counter or to leave the doors unlocked overnight).
I thought this story was poetic. He's the poster-child for NPR, a man with impeccable liberal credentials who you can always count on to say the most politically correct thing possible. But, if he believes in redistribution, why then does he object to the "have nots" taking from the "haves"? Seems to me that his private property is itself a tool of oppression that victimizes the proletariat masses; in fact the "have not" showed revolutionary spirit by relieving the bourgeois of the capital by which he exploits by profit. [a little sarcasm there].

Thieves Break Into Garrison Keillor Bookstore
ST. PAUL (AP) ―
This week's news from Lake Wobegon contains a police report: thieves broke into humorist Garrison Keillor's St. Paul bookstore and stole a safe.
A man and a woman were caught on surveillance tape early Thursday breaking into Common Good Books. The couple broke into a coffee shop, then went into the basement and smashed the front-door window to get into the bookstore.
The burglars jimmied about $3,000 from the registers inside. Assistant manager Martin Schmutterer -- who's been blogging and posting Twitter tweets about the burglary -- says the thieves caused up to $800 in damage.
Schmutterer says Keillor came into the shop to watch the video but didn't say much.
Keillor is host of public radio's "A Prairie Home Companion," where he delivers a weekly monologue about doings in his imaginary hometown of Lake Wobegon. He opened the bookstore in 2006.
