Letter to the editor: Columbine culture

Posted


Now that the fiscally irresponsible prospect of demolishing and resurrecting Columbine HS has been put to bed, should we not consider prominent imagery to repel the misguided gawkers?
If continuous classical music played nightly at inner city convenience stores is sufficient to disburse the local riffraff from congregating outside, wouldn’t a large scale outside mosaic of ‘the Risen Christ’, or ‘Our Lady of Guadalupe’, or ‘Moses with the 10 Commandments’ suffice to discourage those with morbid tendencies from taking their ‘selfies’ in front of Columbine?
As a backup, might a high volume outside sprinkler system dampen the urge of misguided gawkers to congregate before that building?
