Childish on all “sides”

In response to Becky Hessdorfer (“Childish to tear down signs,” Aug. 5), I know you want to believe “the other side has good character,” however I live in the real world where it is not just one side. Myself and at least a half dozen of my neighbors in Colbert have had their Lisa Brown signs stolen (since replaced). I’m guessing there are people without character on “your side” as well.

Perhaps you shouldn’t throw characterization around without having all the facts. I happen to agree with you on having civil discourse. However, your attack on “our side” seems misplaced.
