Burning a Key West Symbol Was Bad—Not Tipping a Bartender Was Worse

From a New York Times story by Vimal Patel headlined “Burning a Key West Symbol Was Bad. Not Tipping a Bartender Was Worse, Locals Say.”:

The 20-ton buoy in Key West, Fla., is a shrine to the quirky city at the southern tip of the continental United States, a Cold War-era object that has long been a tourist attraction and the pride of residents.

So community members were naturally upset when a pair of young men in shorts and backward caps were seen in security camera footage setting fire to the Southernmost Point Buoy in the dark morning hours of New Year’s Day.
