Low Blow to Books in London Riots

Did you see the latest on the London Riots?

On this evening’s network news, video clips were shown of a shopping area in which EVERY SINGLE store was vandalized and looted. Except one.

Yes, it pains me to tell you that the book store was left untouched.

My Pollyanna side would like to think the rioters were showing their reverence for the printed word. But more likely they were showing their utter lack of respect and desire for books.

Pollyanna sighs.

[In contrast, note the photograph above of a library in London just after the Blitz of WWII.]
