Not a real fan | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

"On last Sunday evening (after the victory) or Monday morning, our Seahawks 12th Man Flag was removed from our flagpole, located next to our house and about 20 feet from the curb."

On last Sunday evening (after the victory) or Monday morning, our Seahawks 12th Man Flag was removed from our flagpole, located next to our house and about 20 feet from the curb.

We live in a rather out of the way neighborhood that has been fairly removed from the general traffic of Renton. It amazes me that anyone has the audacity to come on to the property, lower the flag, and walk away with it.

If it be a disgruntled St. Louis fan (which I doubt) or a misguided Seahawks fan (in this case a common thief), I hope you feel the appropriate amount of pride in your action. You are no Seahawks fan and I’d love to have you run a Seahawks gauntlet for your action!

This is just one more shining example of the decay of personal responsibilities to our fellow mankind, much like taking delivered packages off the porch, mail out of the mailbox, and yard decorations (Christmas and others).

There is no condition under which this can be considered an OK action! If the perpetrator was a kid, your parents should have taught you better! If you are a parent, then you should know better!

Please, be respectful to each other and each other’s properties! They’ve worked for them, NOT you!

Jack Wardell,
Renton
