The Skyland Restaurant, site of Don Reid’s Thursday morning breakfast meetings to plot the overthrow of the established order, was robbed early this morning.

A random sign that South Blvd. is dangerous place even with the coming of the $450 million choo-choo — or a warning for everyone to fall in behind the status quo? How about the predictable result of Mecklenburg County running a catch-and-release program for criminals? These heists involving a building full of victims are very brazen and not likely to be the work of first-time stick-up men.

Anyway, if you go Thursday, sit facing the door.
