The long standing ordinance no doubt was originally intended to prevent ugly commercial clutter, but for signs that were dutifully put up on Thursday night and taken down on Saturday afternoon this was overkill. Signs were even confiscated by city workers!
This was before the election and some speculate that the Civic Powers that Be did not want to see too many political signs out there.
Well the election is over. The signs are back in their traditional places. Any lasting effects? Well, just maybe.
I suppose the basic message is one of bipartisanship. Come to the Yuge Sale. Your money is good no matter your politics.
Of course Bernie would probably charge you a higher sales tax!
Hmmm, I had not set out to do so but it seems this week will be about taxes. Only reasonable as recently on the Appian Way we had a full week of the other Immutable - Death.
