News? Check. Politics? Check. Music? Check. Random thoughts about life? Check. Readership? Ummm.... let me get back to you on that. Updated when I feel like I have something to say, and remember to post it.

Government at work

On a section of a street near home, between two cross streets, the city put up new signs. They changed the 20 mph school zone signs, and also added a sign indicating the end of school zone and resumption of the normal speed limit. However, the normal speed limit, 30 mph, was not the same as the speed limit north or south of this section of road! Elsewhere, the speed limit is 40 mph.

The net effect of this situation is that for a few weeks, the speed limit of a particular stretch of road varied based on when you were travelling north or south.

The mess was corrected (by adding 30 mph speed limit signs near the intersections), and at a remarkable speed, at least as far as the government is concerned!
