Idiots…

I have to read through the local paper every morning to see if there is anything written about our organization. We keep a scrapbook of all the press we get…

Today’s paper had the following gem:

VIDEO SIGNS COULD BE OUTLAWED: Councilmen introduce bill to eradicate ‘Las Vegas’ style signs

It began with a motorist mesmerized by the motion on a sign beside Interstate 97. Distracted, the driver swerved, nearly caused an accident, and decided to eradicate the video signs common in New York’s Times Square and beginning to crop up around Anne Arundel County.

The motorist was County Councilman Jamie Benoit…

The sign in question:

Uh huh. THAT was the horrible, lurid distraction. I just don’t know if it is really fair to be coming down on advertising (I personally think the sign is kind of neat) because YOU’RE AN IDIOT. Moving pictures are enough to cause you to swerve and almost wreck? Let’s consider taking your license away, huh?

And just for the record, THIS is a Vegas style sign:

    That is ridiculous! Next they’ll be outlawing attractive women who make men crash into the cars in front and penalise them for being distracting. What. A. Crock.

    I can think of plenty of far more lurid signs that would tear a person’s eyes from the road – I’m just that kind of girl.

    Piffle.

    I’m slightly alarmed at how opinionated I am lately, but I like it!
