I know, I know. This bit of news is criminal, not civil, and I’m ever so civil here on Sidebar, but this is far too wacky — and from Lowering the Bar —not to pass it on. Man Robs Shoe Store, Serves 15 Years, Robs It Again – Lowering the Bar.
(It also has a Jersey setting and nowadays we all must report anything endearingly, absurdly stupid that comes out of Jersey — especially right now, in the wake of news that GWB Christie has just gone to Vegas to kiss Sheldon Adelson’s ring while begging for political $support$.)
I love the “adage” Kevin Underhill (he’s the Lowering the Bar maestro) used on top of this story:
He who does not learn from history is doomed to repeatedly rob the same shoe store.
