Another Robbery at Saks

75544148 Another Robbery at Saks This week the Daily Transom reported a string of fashion-related thefts on the Upper East Side, one of which occured at Saks Fifth Avenue. On July 11, two young woman entered the department store and attempted to walk out with four Herve Leger dresses (stuffed into a shopping bag) without paying for them.

Now, two weeks later, it seems the store was struck again by a fashionable thief. According to the New York Post, Poertieiea Sturdivant, 49, entered the store around 5:45 pm on Saturday, placed two designer dresses and two pairs of shoes into a shopping bag and made her out of the store. A security guard stopped Ms. Sturdivant and asked for a receipt, which she could not provide.

According to DA Cyrus Vance Jr., she has been charged with grand larceny and criminal possession of stolen property. The designer of the dresses was not specified.

STAR OF DAVID OR 'PLAIN STAR'?   If you thought "CP Time" was impolitic, on July 2 Donald Trump posted a picture on Twitter of a Star of David on top of a pile of cash next to Hillary Clinton's face. You'd think after the aforementioned crime stats incident (or after engaging a user called "@WhiteGenocideTM," or blasting out a quote from Benito Mussolini, or...) Trump would have learned to wait a full 15 seconds before hitting the "Tweet" button. But not only was the gaffe itself bad, the attempts at damage control made the BP oil spill response look a virtuoso performance.  About two hours after the image went up on Trump's account, somebody took it down and replaced it with a similar picture that swapped the hexagram with a circle (bearing the same legend "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"!). Believe it or not, it actually got worse from there. As reports arose that the first image had originated on a white supremacist message board, Trump insisted that the shape was a "sheriff's star," or "plain star," not a Star of David. And he continued to sulk about the coverage online and in public for days afterward, even when the media was clearly ready to move on. This refusal to just let some bad press go would haunt him later on.
