    Served three years in a military HS and JC: Wentworth Military Academy (now defunct), in Lexington, MO. There were a number of skirmishes there during the (un)Civil War. Residents there had pretty much gotten over it, but knew and appreciated the town's history. Quaint town and good folks.

    I wonder what a 15ft tall bronze, granite or marble statute would cost to replace? By that I mean: I wonder if towns could go after such perps, hard, financially, for the destruction of property the People have paid for such items. Can't imagine it'd be anything less than $six figures for such a statute ... probably more, in many cases.

    Imagine a group of people wielding 20lb sledgehammers upon the Vietnam Memorial, in DC, taking out a dozen panels. Outright warfare might well start, then, if such people aren't careful, simply due to the abject effrontery of such an act.

    They're playing with fire, such people. I suspect most don't even know it.

    Vietnam memorial: I knew 'nam vets that hated, loathed, detested and despised the Black Gash. until they went there the first time. many went back.

    some of you remember a radical who was one of the Chicago Seven: Jerry Rubin. he was a stockbroker when he died.

    these fools have no idea what fools they are.
