Former Fulton County Historian Peter?Betz seems to feel his infraction of the law is funny; I'm sorry, I don't get the joke. Where I come from, stealing is stealing. It's fun to make light of the whole thing by calling it the "tempest in the tea pot," but it really was not yours to take. It seems like you have done a lot of good things in your life, but that does not make you entitled to something that's not yours. I find your tea party joke in poor taste.
Maybe your next article should be based on the history of the stockade in the center of the city of Johnstown, and what it was used for.
