To quote the late songwriter Jim Croce:
You don't tug on Superman's cape
You don't spit into the wind
You don't pull the mask off the old Lone Ranger
And ... you don't write on the Alamo.
San Antonio police have arrested an Illinois man after authorities witnessed him writing on the northeast wall of the Alamo, the place that has been called the Shrine of Texas Liberty.
According to a police report, Wise wrote the letters “LCC” on some limestone on the wall that is part of the original Long Barracks constructed by missionaries in 1724. It's unclear what "LCC" stands for.
“Defacing the Alamo is like desecrating a grave,” Alamo Director David Stewart said.
The man, Stephen Henry Wise, 44, of Evanston, is facing criminal mischief charges.
