Subject: RE: Folklore: Glastonbury thorn destroyed
I think the point here is not whether it will grow back (as it probably will) but the arrogant destruction of a beautiful tree and the insult to a belief system. Just the act of wantonly cutting the tree is reprehensible. Was it done to attack the validity of the legend? Only the vandal can tell us.
In any case, it is a sad thing
