Inside the Green House: A bit imposing

So often I've heard the line "don't impose your morality on me"... It seems that is not the case when it comes to the moral stewardship of our environment...
When Gareth Groves brought home his massive new Hummer, he knew his environmentally friendly neighbors disapproved. But he didn't expect what happened next. The sport utility vehicle was parked for five days on the street before two masked men smashed the windows, slashed the tires and scratched into the body: "FOR THE ENVIRON."
The good neighbors have some definite ideals of what is right and what is wrong.
Neighbor Lucille Liem, who owns a Prius hybrid, said that a common sentiment in the neighborhood is that large vehicles such as the Hummer are impractical and a strain on the Earth.
"The neighborhood in general is very concerned with the environment," said Liem, whose Prius gets about 48 miles a gallon compared with the Hummer's 14 miles a gallon. "It's more liberal leaning. It's ridiculous to be driving a Hummer."
And then comes the moment of spirtal purity.
Liem quickly added that she does not condone violence.
