I don't condone "attacking" anything as part of the normal political process - we haven't quite got there yet - but there is a difference. A small independent bookshop is normally a family's only means of earning a living, where as JRM has lots of houses, gardens, and cars, and could buy a few dozen more without noticing the cost.
