    I can respect someone who I do not agree with, but I have NO respect for someone who puts others down in a public forum. That is the hallmark of someone who has no integrity, and cannot be trusted.

    First of all, the pic above is real. not a fauxtoshop. It is one of some 10 15-foot tall signs recently installed near an elementary school in Culver City, CA (The Land of LA). I read somewhere that the signs had been replaced with something less crazily complicated (the time it takes just to read all those signs might be long enough to be spotted and get a ticket!),

    While it is difficult to be certain, I have to challenge the "land of LA" reference...
    I do not see even one of those signs in Spanish!
