Don’t tolerate vandals, vandalism

“The article in last week’s paper about the problem of restroom vandalism in Clovis city parks struck a chord with me. I’ve seen the results myself. I realize the people who vandalize park restrooms aren’t the kind of people who read newspapers. Nor much of anything else for that matter. I’m going to express my contempt for those reprehensible creatures anyway. … I never excuse taxation and don’t want it used to fund anything, even things I like, including parks or their restrooms. But what kind of a dimwit vandalizes restrooms? I’d guess they are the kind of people who will relieve themselves on a picnic table or on someone’s lawn, just because they are too self-centered to care about others. Vandalism and litter are two things I can’t think of any excuse for doing. If you ask me, both are as irresponsible as cluttering the world with legislation.” (07/07/21)
