Maybe Molly never was alive

but maybe there's something there

to enliven a moment of your time.

Unexpectedly I came across a month old news article today.

The bookstore owner at the center of the story

has been a friend of mine for more than 30 years.

We haven't spoken in years but I plan to amend that.

I know some of you have a fondness for "unusual books".

Always fingered you were more

a lock picker than smash and grabber.

I wouldn't have thought The Teachings of Don Juan was rare - must have been a first addition, or signed, or both.  My own copy, with three or four of the subsequent volumes in the series, was a hardcover ripoff, published in China in the 70s.  One of the best things about being over there was the cheap books, mere pennies on the dollar.

 

Did they not have video surveillance?  It's everywhere these days.  Watched a show recently about an asshole who murdered his mom because she was blowing the millions his father had left to her, gambling it away in casinos.  The stupid bastard lied to the cops about his whereabouts, but he was on video at the casino, going in there to retrieve the old lady's belongings from her room after he had set her up to come home, where he had killed her.  I remember going onto a gambling riverboat in 1997 or so, and not being able to get away from the cameras on the ceiling everywhere, under little glass domes, rotating and whirring to follow my every move.  Hot dog stands have surveillance video these days, and this asshole thought he could go unobserved in a building that handles millions of dollars every day?  They put a tracking device on his car, and even discovered where he had buried the body using that.

 

It bugs me that the assholes who stole those books might have thrown them into a dumpster when they realized there was no ready cash for which to exchange them .......


You might be surprised how well old goat sausages are able to stand up to the heat.
