SLOW CHILDREN AT PLAY
For want of a comma, dash, or variation in typeface, the meaning was lost.
Unlike the recent brouhaha over what turned out to be a doctored magazine cover whose headline seemed hilarious at the time, the sign up top — on Solomon Road in my Podunk town, about a mile from my house — is the real McCoy, seen in a photo taken with my iPhone yesterday, not Photoshopped or touched up in any way.
Not least because I haven't a clue how to do stuff like that, having never used Photoshop et al.
The man standing next to the sign (for scale and color, among other things) is well known to me, being one Cary Sternick, my longtime friend (we met in Milwaukee in 1964 when we were in high school).
His collection of strange T-shirts, an exemplar of which he sports in the photo, rivals any I have seen.

I saw that sign last week and meant to take a picture of it. Remarkable.

Intrigued by the shoes -- looks like gold lame fastened with magnets.
