Well, let's not exaggerate. Not the whole of London but still it was a grim spectacle. I guess, though, that no matter how momentous and tragic the event, there will always be someone to utter something incredibly stupid. And someone else to laugh at that.
While the rioters in England this week have looted shops selling shoes, clothes, computers, and plasma televisions, they've curiously bypassed one particular piece of merchandise: books.Emphasis mine.
To mollify my British friends: I didn't really have a full-blown belly laugh reading this. First of all, since I have a back pain that just kills me since I've opened my eyes this morning. And then, the Guardian... ehehe...
