The Looters

Posted By on Wed, Aug 31, 2005 at 11:17 AM

I am generally with Jonah Goldberg on this one.

I think it's defensible to get necessities for yourself and your family under these circumstances (it would be even more so if those talking the good pay for them later if possible). What I don't think is defensible is getting televisions and other non-necessities. Also, what the devil are these people going to do with those things? Where are you going to plug them in? That stuff will probably end up being abandoned somewhere anyway.

I think Aunt B. is overwrought. I'll accept that all of the looters are victims of the storm, but will she accept that not all of the victims of the storm are not looters? There are some--right?--that aren't engaging in these activities.

She also seems to disregard the fact that some of these people are not going after necessities (the minority I would assume, but still the case).
