Taking Abbie Hoffman Literally

Westport’s finest had a busy day.

First, after a 2-hour pursuit they nabbed a man and woman accused of trying to fraudulently withdraw (aka “steal”) money.

The scene of the crime.

Soon they were on another case. Barnes & Noble reported 2 suspects stealing “large quantities of books,” and fleeing on foot.

The cops nailed the perps. They found the vehicle: a Jaguar with Georgia plates. Inside were $868 worth of books.

First, I congratulate the cops for their quick — and very effective — work.

Second, I’m impressed that thieves in Westport drive Jaguars.

Third, as an author I’m delighted that people come here to steal books.

I guess we’re still an artists’ colony after all.
