    My first thought was that it was some sort of eco-terrorism related to the lighting controversy. But my gut tells me that that would be giving the perps too much credit. More likely, it was some yahoos out for a joy ride. Fortunately, yahoos tend to have big mouths. Let’s hope that the reward does its job and the LTM has some mug shots to post soon.
