When Maid Marian surrendered to the Sheriff’s constabulary, she knew she was in safe hands. Okay, that’s a snarky caption/title for a ridiculous photo. Let’s talk about Marian’s hubby instead.

The popular myth of Robin Hood that he “robbed from the rich and gave to the poor” is a relatively recent interpretation, and Rabunhod did nothing of the sort. He was a dangerous highwayman for sure, but he targeted the tax collectors in order to return the excessive confiscations to their proper owners.

Presumably he didn’t do this for free, and likely took a percentage for his collection services. Is that wrong? I don’t think so, because he stole back that which was stolen from others. He took the risk for the good, and he deserved a commission. Pirates and common criminals weren’t so generous.

Take it for what it’s worth because it’s always worth taking, especially on
The Overnight Open Thread.
