Next time a riot breaks out, Congress should grant Eric Cartman letters of marque and reprisal. Done and done.

I do not understand rioting. The destruction of personal property repulses me. Why people riot after sporting victories, sporting losses, or whatever the hell is going on in London, confounds me, and makes me sick.

But look at this picture carefully. It is of a 89-year-old barber whose shop was trashed by mindless looters. You don’t get more mom-and-pop than this. Ruthless pillagers ruined this man’s business. This is the face of rioting. Not some big nefarious corporation or a fascist police state. Aaron Biber, and his barber shop.
