Editorial - The lowest form of thievery strikes again
If thievery has a hierarchy, stealing flowers from a grave has to rank among the lowest.
Yet it happens all too often. And right here, throughout Douglas County, especially around Memorial Day time.
Patty Wicken of Alexandria sent us the photo that accompanies this editorial. It shows the graves of her parents and sister-in-law where flowers were stolen early this Memorial Day. "I wish I had a 'before' photo," Wicken said. "They were all so beautiful."
