Letter: Kirby’s bowling-ball howitzer fun truly ‘mindless’
First Published Apr 14 2014 01:37 pm • Last Updated Apr 14 2014 01:53 pm

Re the April 8 Tribune column titled "Kirby: ‘Walter’ the bowling-ball howitzer did us proud":

"Cows sleeping a quarter of a mile away jumped up and galloped frantically in the direction of Tooele." "A seagull may have gotten its feelings hurt."

Does the writer enjoy causing distress to animals? Did one of his "salvos" land on a rabbit or a snake? Perhaps he does not care about that.

Apparently, he is looking for more bowling balls as, "We couldn’t find all the ones we shot Saturday." Doesn’t it feel great to blast away and litter the land with debris? After all, it just must be "enormously fun!"

By the way, your actions remind me of those two "goblin topplers" who disrespectfully pushed over the ancient rock formation in Goblin Valley. Is there a fine for littering public land?

Perhaps the Tribune needs to stay focused on reporting about more substantive things? Yes, "All of this sounds like mindless fun."
