As I drove home today I traveled on a local parkway that has a wide median. Part of our "county beautification" project is that the parkway median is seeded with wildflowers periodically. Right now, they have BURST into blooms of pinks, purples and whites. Framed by the trees on either side of the parkway which are now changing into their fall wardrobe, the combination is a beautiful one, except that stuck in the ground about every 10 feet is a bright red political sign advocating a particular candidate. There are blue signs for a different candidate, and they are about one every 50 feet.
Wouldn't it be nice if the clutter of elections was confined to someplace where the wildflower plantings aren't done?
While I was on the parkway, I was behind a woman in a subaru outback. She had an intriguing magnet on the back of her car that was about 6" x 4". When we approached the red light, I pulled a little bit closer than I usually do so I could read it because it was really small.
Here's what it looked like:
