Political: Sign vandalism hurts democracy

I noticed, this morning, that the large John Kerry sign at the intersection of Highway 20 and Arnold Road, south of Oak Harbor, had been knocked down again. Before the Kerry sign went up, the Larsen sign at the same location was vandalized frequently. Apparently some Republicans forget that the right to oppose an administration’s policies is at the very heart of democracy.
