I, Rock


LEAD AVE., SE--Every neighborhood seems to be famous for something. Oh the North Valley has its individualistic mailboxes...and the South Valley is famous for its mix of industro-agripolitical neighborhoods. The NE Heights has the heaviest concentration of strip centers in the state. And the West Side has a million side streets and no arterials. And the Southeast Heights is the absolute King of Wry when it comes to political statements.

You are probably familiar with the Leon Trotsky Croquet Field over near the Ernie Pyle Library. And you might have seen the hand-painted signs that stick up over the bushes on Coal SE that proclaim something about stopping the Bush Gulags. But the newest one has me a little stumped.

It may be important to note that the painted rocks are underneath a stoplight. I don't really know, though. I don't generally understand these things either.

Excellent! Score one for the contextual learners.

I wonder - owner or renter and if it comes true will the ink ever come off the rocks? Coco

But sometimes the light says "stop," and sometimes it says "go." And then, for that deliciously brief interval every cycle, it says "go if you think you can make it, but you might want to seriously consider stopping instead." Ah, the power of ambiguity....

They managed to clean the paint off the rocks... It looks like they also painted them to cover some up.

They also moved them around so even if you could make out what they said it would say RIQA or ARIQ.
