Vandals Took the Handles
What would compel a vandal to crudely deface this Brookside street sign?
Maybe it’s just the work of a juvenile stoner out for a laugh.
But it could be a cry for help from a neighborhood kid. His divorced parents ship him off to boarding school and otherwise ignore him unless it’s time for the bi-annual family portrait. Back home for the summer, he roams Brookside every night with a can of spray paint and a bottle pilfered from his dad’s liquor cabinet.
Or maybe the vandal is just a moron.
