Lake Effect: Love, Main Street Style

Speculation is rampant over the Aug. 24 destruction of glass windows at the Salt Lake City mayoral candidate Keith Christensen’s campaign office on Main Street between 200 and 300 South. Was it a politically motivated attack?

The Deseret Morning News remains diffident: “There was no indication whether Christensen’s office was specifically targeted, or if it was just a random vandalism” [Aug. 28].

Some say the cause was unrequited love: According to witnesses, the alleged vandal made advances to a woman at the scene which were not welcome—particularly by the woman’s husband. He says that a scuffle ensued and the man, enraged, began kicking the office windows.

Since the incident happened right outside City Weekly offices, we blogged about it immediately. We rarely see any indication that events affecting Main Street are of interest to the outside world, so we were gratified to see the story hit the mainstream media four days later.

Now patrols are up on the street—so there’s hope that random attacks of stupidity may be on the wane.
