As streets were cleaned and businesses re-built yesterday in the wake of the latest bout of public destruction of property and robbery downtown, thugs, thieves and other malcontents expressed their longing for a continuation of festivities.
“My liquor cabinet will be empty soon,” Brittany Meyerson observed. “I hope that another legally-innocent person dies soon—preferably while in police custody and under suspicious circumstances. I’m really short of cash right now.”

Power to the people!”
