Not exactly Bernadine Dohrn and Bill Ayers


Last week’s horrible events in Boston reminded me of the strange incident in New York where two rich-kid heroin addicts were busted with explosives and guns. New York Magazine ran a feature article on Aaron Greene and Morgan Gliedman. The two were originally thought to be with the Occupy movement thanks to an initial report by the New York Post, but it looks more like two over-indulged children of means who became drug addicts and started to stockpile guns and explosives. Or as New York Magazine put it, “They were young and in love and pregnant and partial to heroin and living in a Village apartment with a lot of heavy weaponry lying about. What could possibly go wrong?”

I challenge you to read the article and not have Steve Miller stuck in your head all day.

This here’s a story about Billy Joe and Bobbie Sue
Two young lovers with nothin’ better to do
Than sit around the house, get high, and watch the tube
And here is what happened when they decided to cut loose

They headed down to, ooh, old El Paso
That’s where they ran into a great big hassle
Billy Joe shot a man while robbing his castle
Bobbie Sue took the money and run

Go on take the money and run
Go on take the money and run
Go on take the money and run
Go on take the money and run

If there’s a lesson to be learned from this story and the Ricin-mailing Elvis impersonator, sometimes a cigar is just a cigar, and sometimes a nut is just a nut. Oh, and don’t trust the New York Post.
