Here's a thought: Why don't the people who are rioting and causing chaos in Ferguson, Missouri, take the ice bucket challenge? ["Nat'l Guard told to leave Ferguson," News, Aug. 22].

That would literally cool them off, and they could donate money to honor Michael Brown -- perhaps a scholarship fund in his name or give the money to the family.

This is in no way honoring his life. The riots will always be associated with his name.
