Rickie Williams: Wonders why people told about prank

(Editor's note: The BMW in question cost $750 - practically brand new, but second hand, after Hartsell Hodges won it at a Bardstown picnic raffle. Today the same car would sell as a collector's item for $25,000 or more. I sold it for $350 when one of the universal joints broke. - EW

By Rickie Williams
Personal commentary

Many times on the news I wonder WHY was the public told this or that?

The reason being that sometimes all the news does is to give bad and/or stupid people ideas to copy. Your reporting of your car being put down that stairwell makes me wonder the same. How long until word gets out and a batch of boys with more brawns than brains copies the action?

A car back then might have been worth a couple hundred bucks. Consider the value of some cars today. Consider the number of crooked lawyers that would be happy to jump on a case like this.

Just my thoughts on the matter.

--Rickie Williams
