A congressional candidate was robbed in Miami. Reports the Washington Times:
Police in North Miami say a Democratic congressional candidate was robbed at gunpoint Saturday while waiting to make a campaign appearance at a church.
Police Lt. Neal Cuevas said that the candidate, Marleine Bastien, was in a car Saturday with her sister outside the Church of the Living God when another car pulled up along side them. A man got out, opened the driver’s door and demanded the women give him their purses and threatened to kill them.
Now, no one can support thieves lifting the purses of congressional candidates. But the (private) crook might have acted preemptively. After all, if elected, Ms. Bastien will be constantly stealing purses and wallets from the rest of us. The robber might have figured that he should get a little of his money back ahead of time when he had the chance.
A pity. These days there just isn’t any honor among thieves.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
