(She compares it to "a shark attacking a dolphin.") [See video here]
In related news, "Arl-Now" reports that other Priuses were targeted in South Arlington on the same night, and one Arlington County government truck's tires were also slashed. If the government truck was deliberately targeted, then the case for it being "political" may be strengthened, I guess.
I read Monkey Wrench Gang some time ago in the library. I also read some of Abbey's diaries. Mr. Abbey was quite a character: I was surprised to see (to contradict what I just wrote) that Abbey was not a "radical environmentalist". Not in the way we think of that term, of that "archetype", today. He was a radical, certainly; he was an environmentalist, unquestionably, but... well, his diaries reveal many more (what would today be called) "radical right-wing" stances than "radical left-wing" ones. Abbey is remembered today (if at all) as a "radical environmentalist". If you read the man's own words, it's...just...not...so. / I don't think Mr. Abbey would like Arlington very much at all.
