When I went outside last evening, someone had put bags of garbage and two over-flowing recycle boxes right up against the Pink Slip Pinata.With garbage pick-up early in the morning, I think they were hoping that the truck would pick up the art installation along with the house refuse.
Today, things stepped up and someone toppled the Pink Slip Pinata, hoofed it over so that it lay straddling the curb, half on the sidewalk and half on the lawn. This happened roughly late-afternoon. My neighbour alerted me to the problem at around 5:30 pm and when I saw the structure laying on its side, my first thought was to right it, which I did with the help of two passersby. I did not take photos which I should have. I have, of course, informed the police. ( Police case number 12-297200)
|Fortunately, the pinata portion was in the garage.|
Most of the signs, held loosely in place by roofing nails, were knocked off and one of the keyboards into which the pink slips were glued was damaged. There was minor damage done to the two new signs below that were created specially for yesterday's television interview.
Three things occur to me:
1. Someone dislikes the message about the egregious cuts to the Federal Civil Service
2. Someone is taken aback by the actual art installation or
3. Someone wanted to destroy my efforts and make me feel bad.
