Well, y’all, here’s a little town with some real smart folks a-runnin’ it, HEE-HAW!
Apparently the governin’ body has the authorteh and the abiliteh to tear up some sidewalks and put up some of those there real fancy light poles, but the city’s got some problems with havin’ a traffic light up at a four way stop.
Instead, the so-called powers that be have declared that we shall have not a traffic light, but a SUSPENDED STOP SIGN!
Don’t believe me? Oh, look here, you’re gonna in a second, son.
SERIOUSLY? Is this place Mayberry?
Note: I do not mean any disrespect to the laborers who are hard at work tearing up and rebuilding the sidewalk. They’re being paid to do a job and doing it; they cannot be held accountable for the rather uninformed decisions of the local powers-that-be, nor their lack of common sense.
Apparently, tearing up some of the sidewalks laid by the best men Slocomb has ever seen and replacing them with brand new sidewalks complete with street lamps that will burn from dusk until dawn 365 days a year is affordable and cost-effective. Yet a simple traffic light at a four-way stop where many cars don’t bother to even slow down and most come to a rolling stop is OUT OF THE QUESTION!
Make what you will of it. Sometimes, human stupidity just makes you want to laugh.
