These were obviously intelligent professionals. They didn't take one single loony left wing book.

"Common Good" bookstore is also in the basement, far from the elevators. That one took some doing.

Dunno how much they would have gotten. When I visited, they were busy in all areas except for the cash register. I certainly didn't find anything I wanted to buy--yes, as a propaganda arm for Mr. Keillor, it qualifies as a bit of a tax haven for him, if you catch my drift.

Perfect! Why is there a safe in the first place?

A hard-core lib like Keillor should be sharing all of his profits with those that are less fortunate. What a greedy capitalist pig he is for keeping a safe for his own evil enrichment!

Thanks to the St. Paul Police Department, I now have my make up kit back. And, man oh man, did I need it!

This is the second article I've read on this and still no descriptions of the perps. WTF? Are these writers actually journalists? Let's try reporting the things that matter, too.
