You can steal the flags, damage the flagpole but...


A Umass collegian columnist pointed out today how bad it looks for Umass students in general for some drunken Nitwits (probably students) to steal the US and POW flags that fly daily from the (former) pole in front of American Legion Post 148 in Amherst town center.

He closes with the hope that the flags will be returned (thus telegraphing that he's a naive, doe- eyed, cub columnist.)

Tut, tut, tut. Larry was never between 18 and 23 years old, young, dumb and full of pranks, which goes to his judgmental and cynical comments about the vandal(s) and the reporter.

Well, I did attend UMass, Umass, Umas full-time from 1973-1977 (back when it was known as "Zoo Mass") and for most of those years also worked as a bouncer at The Pub in Amherst, so I know a bit about "dumb and full of pranks."
