There have been some debates recently involving, oddly enough, signs. First, there is an effort to ban digital graphic signs because a county councilman apparently was distracted by one and almost got into an accident. AP believes that such a ban would have little effect on bad driving.

And then, some people are giving the county grief because the county built a $20,000 sign that was 10 feet wide and 6 feet high.

I chuckled when I read this. You see the city of Annapolis is planning to do a similar thing--they are building a $10,000,000 (ten million dollar) gateway to Annapolis on outer West Street!!!!


(Exclamation point. Exclamation point. Exclamation point. Exclamation point.)

As I understand it, this project will be an arch built over West Street at Old Solomon's Island Rd.

For those of you scoring at home, $10 million is enough to hire 23 police officers for more than 7 years, at least according to my math.
