Possibly More Potent Signs
Bob Costa’s rant about end zone celebrations being symptomatic of the disintegration of American society is probably a bit overwrought.
This is… just sad.
Not content with just promises of a more perfect Union and domestic tranquility, metal thieves have targeted the U.S. Constitution to make a quick buck.
A thief or thieves have destroyed the 24-year-old Constitution Bicentennial Monument at City Park, apparently in order to steal and recycle the brass plaques that adorned it, authorities said.
The stolen plaques measure about four feet by two feet and bear the preamble to the U.S. Constitution and its articles. The monument was installed to commemorate the bicentennial of the Constitution in 1987.
