Yesterday's news, but...
I couldn't pass up on the latest in the Eureka Reporter regarding Richard Salzman having been witnessed "vandalizing" parking meters in Eureka with Anti- Arkley decals.
If true, maybe I'll agree with Cherie Arkley that Salzman has way too much time on his hands. I suspect he has an obsessive hatred of anything not left of center, as well. Kinda scary, people obsessed with hatred, but he's not the only one around here like that.
But, here we go; The witnesses reported it to the police as vandalism. I can't help but wonder if either of the witnesses are going to assist in pressing charges on this? Are we going to make a mountain out of a molehill again?
Salzman's already been humiliated over that episode where he got caught sending letters to the editor under fake names. I said back then that the humiliation was enough punishment for the supposed crime.
I realize technically he committed vandalism and that people sticking decals where they don't belong is quite annoying but, hey, is it really that big a deal?
He deserves the humiliation of getting caught and I don't really care if the papers follow this story for a week or two. But I think another criminal investigation is a bit out there. I say let the humiliation go on, but as far as making a major criminal case over this, just drop it.
