Nothing undermines possibly-good ideas like arming critics. Good luck questioning government when you govern yourself like that.

Before Garfield was a lasagna-eating cartoon cat, he was America’s 20th president … for 200 days, before an assassin killed him.

Garfield’s legacy took another hit last week when burglars broke into his Cleveland tomb and stole 13 commemorative spoons. They left behind cigarette butts, a t-shirt and empty Fireball cinnamon whiskey bottle.

You expect such behavior from Ohioans. They’ve broken into Saugatuck too, based on recent antics in what Coastal Living magazine calls one of “America’s Happiest Seaside Towns,” even though there’s no sea to see for 1,000 miles.

Just when the McClendon, consolidation and Presbyterian Camps conflicts seemed to be in remission, we’ve seen profane outbursts at city meetings and leaders charging each other with bullying, stalking, harassment and other hijinks.
