St. Olaf College is the excellent liberal arts undergraduate institution down the road from Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota. This year Phil Busse is a visiting professor at the college. In his spare time he pulls down McCain-Palin lawn signs posted on homes up and down Highway 19, the east-west road that runs through Northfield. He brags about it at what James Taranto calls the Puffington Host in “Confessions of a lawn sign stealer.” The Northfield News has picked up the confession and reported on it in “St. Olaf prof confesses to sign theft in blog.” (Read more about Busse here.)
Saint Augustine Professor Busse is not. He finds exhilaration in awfully cheap thrills. But he provides a sobering object lesson in the derangement of the left.
