10/28/2008: "LETTERS ON DESTRUCTION OF SIGNS"


---------------------------------------
Democrats Are Appalled
To the Editor:

The county Democrats were appalled to learn of the destruction of
Republican yard signs at the Thorndike property on Cattle Point Road.
We absolutely condemn this sort of behavior, this lack of respect for
the important right of free speech, and we extend apologies to the
Thorndikes although obviously we don't know who might be responsible
for this destruction.

In general this year, we have been pleased with the lack of such
behavior, although a few of our signs have also been torn down and/or
removed. There are always a few yahoos who don't grasp the concept of
civility and respect.

One of our Obama signs, incidentally, was removed by Mona the camel
reaching over the fence and plucking it out of its stand. We don't hold
it against her because she never had an opportunity to study civics in
school -- but we utterly condemn the human beings who do such things.
