    “Formal dedication of South Lakes High School students’ public art work” — their “public art work” involving spray-painted swastikas was informally dedicated a few weeks ago…

      Ming, check out Twitter @redsteeze &@exjon. You are famous!

    Eek! I get your point, but this type of assault only comes back on the ticked off constituent and hard! There are better ways. Heaven forbid if it ever came to blows, this would still be a pathetic approach.

    • Mark Habershaw

      A thug wears a hoodie and produces a weapon and tells you its a robbery. A politician wears a tie and produces a piece of paper and tells you its a tax or fee. If you can beat up a thug, you should be able to beat up a politician.

      • Mike M

        Beat up a thug and the Courts MIGHT condone. Beat up a pol, and you MIGHT go to jail and spend your time with thugs.

        There are smarter ways. I heard that when the County jailed Mr. Thoburn for landscaping violations that faxed threats of violence were instrumental in getting him released. I don’t know if this is true, but no one went to jail for it.
