Another ‘sign’ of progress in Lake Worth.

UPDATE! Reports are coming in another Silly Red Sign (see below) came down last night. Yippeeeeee!

You may have noticed some signs by the Silly Red Sign (SRS) platoon are being re-purposed with cheap red spray paint. The shaky white stenciling is advertising properties “For Sale” or “For Rent”, and sometimes both at the same time.

What must be confusing for people looking for a home, condo, or apartment is one can still see the “Hands Off” in the sign through the cheap paint. Talk about a mixed message.

Anyhow, Mark Twain understood the power of lies, like those of SRS. Here is a quote attributed to him:
A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is still putting on its shoes.
When you go around the City and still see a yard with a Silly Red Sign, think of them like the WWII soldiers that emerged from the jungles in the Philippines looking very confused still thinking the war was going on — years after it ended.

Some SRS signs have been out so long they’re now leaching dangerous Chloroplast chemicals into the Lake Worth aquifier. Don’t they care about Lake Worth’s drinking water? Your pets?

The public became bored with the message 2 years ago. To shake things up SRS added, “& POOL”. Remember the original sign? It read “HANDS OFF OUR POTHOLES”. That message didn’t go over very well with the public.
