Senseless vandalism is costly

August 15, 2013

The idiotic vandalism last week at the new Erik Ramstad Middle School under construction on Minot’s North Hill still makes us angry, especially after learning Tuesday that the cost to clean and......

For what it's worth Nammex, I laughed at your 2 posts as well, although maybe for slightly different reasons. I wouldn't want you to feel left out.

Good point, slater. It made me LOL, and I don't throw my LOLs around liberally.

You teach your children that our leaders are frauds, that our government is corrupt and that our society is dying . . . then you wonder why they have no respect for our social institutions?

You people have spent nearly a decade tearing America down. Of course your kids want to join in on the fun.

If it were my vandalism prone property i would have someone there 24/7. Schools are unfortunately magnets for vandalism, but instead of protecting our schools, our leaders are dreaming up a new event center on the fair grounds. Both matters involve someone else's money--our tax money.

"Killroy was here" and the toppling of dictators' statues still seems to get positive press, so far as vandalism goes.

The startling revelation of "senseless" vandalism begs the question: what would be examples of "worthwhile","sensible" or "reasonable" vandalism?

This newspaper -- as a course of daily doing business -- injects partisanship, division and rancor into the public discourse. Now, the Minot Daily News editors wish to wag their fingers and condemn vandalism, graffiti and the disrespect of community!

Daily churning out negativity and nastiness -- under the guise of "news" -- has very real consequences.

The MDN's decade of Tea Party tantrums -- 24/7 -- has affected more than just our young people's attitudes.

We now have one of the highest rates of middle-aged suicides in the nation. The MDN's unhappiness has spread like a disease. The entire state is self-medicating with booze.

Where do you think people have learned to believe that things are so horrible and hopeless? Where do you suppose they learned to devalue our culture, our systems and our society?

They've learned it from the anti-Obama, anti-government, anti-everything media machinations of FOX and the Minot Daily News.
