Aaaaah! The gates are open!

May 18, 2010

Dear Mitchell, you know I love you, right?

I’m nuts about the Nile Theater and fancy The Feed Barn. I like La Joya and prefer Prairie Vine.

But I have to tease a little.

Mitchell, about your community signs . . .

I’m all for community pride, and I really enjoy seeing these monuments to a town’s personality.

And you beat the pants off of the dull signage around Scottsing.

Ho-hum

But think about your message for a minute . . .

I get that you’re probably going for a friendly, welcoming atmosphere.

But you’re located along a highway in cattle country.

When I see the signs at the borders of your city, I think . . .

“Gates open”? AAAAAH! THE CATTLE ARE LOOSE!
