Many more dark secrets to share
RE: “Unlocking dark secrets of Victoria’s 150-year history,” July 26-Aug. 1
I was shocked and appalled by this issue of your otherwise fine publication.
First, the cover, featuring a gruesome photo of some hideous human-bird mutant frightened both myself and my cat Groober to the extent that we spent the entire day after first viewing it cowering in a closet.
Second, I feel it is most irresponsible of you to reveal these black episodes from our fair town’s past — especially given the tender sensibilities of some residents such as Groober and myself. I have had nightmares horrible beyond description as a result.
However, I must commend you for omitting mention of some of the most horrid episodes of Victoria’s past — such as the satanic boy scout troop, the sale of human body parts by a local butcher, the Beacon Hill Park crucifixions, and the real reason why part of the legislative buildings have been sealed off forever behind a three-foot-thick welded steel door.
More in sorrow than in anger, yours sincerely,
