i voted AGAINST blue back TWICE

but that is NOT an excuse for vandalism. it's a shame people are such idiots. no, i don't want it in my town. i don't want the extra taxes (even though the town has said they will be lowered, NO ONE has seen THAT yet. and guess what, WE AIN'T GONNA EITHER), i don't want the extra traffic (did you ever get off at the trout brook exit of 84? imagine that times 10. not pretty is is?)

BUT no one has the right to destroy or deface property that isn't theirs.

Vandalism at Blue Back Square

West Hartford-WTNH, Oct. 23, 2006 11:00 PM) _ Police are investigating acts of vandalism in downtown West Hartford.
The Blue Back Square project that was targeted has been a lightning rod in the community.
by News Channel 8's Bob Wilson
"I was mad. I was really angry. This not a responsible action by a civic minded person," says Kelly Kennedy, West Hartford.
Blue paint tattooed on the side walks and buildings declaring bad progress for Blue Back Square. Last year in a controversial vote, the people of West Hartford voted for the commercial, residential and retail development in the center of town. After a year of building, the graffiti started showing up.
"It's pretty much a juvenile thing and it is what it is."
Anybody who does something like that, the law should look at them and they should punish them severely," says Bob LaPerla, West Hartford merchant.

that is so not cool. The few times I did stencils (many moons ago) the we used ground up chalk, so the rain or a water hose could wash away.

I'm as against megamalls/bubble communities as the next person, but this was a malicious thing to do.

and your previous post..abosolutely Lamont. I hope he can pull it off, or this country is in for a real JoeTastrophe.
