Sad but True
But if I had any lingering illusions that issues mattered this election, the picture below pretty much dispelled them. I debated whether to post this. I just didn't want to touch national political stuff other than the purely wonkish angles... but this was so troubling that I would have felt guilty to ignore it completely. Where exactly this was put up is not as important as the mere fact that it exists. I'll just say it was 100 miles or so from Pittsburgh. If I only saw one sign like this I would still have just ignored it, but it was not alone. Someone clearly has a template to paint these in quantity. Three colors no less.
