Sign thief is cooling his heels in the new police holding cell

Field Club member waits for squash partner

No word on identity (any interested reader can call down and find out – it’s a public record) but word is the cops nabbed someone last night at the Lake Avenue circle. He was stealing signs of both political parties, apparently fueled by a desire to beautify his neighborhood and, possibly, a few too many scotches. He couldn’t post bail, which is why he is being held until Monday, and his lack of ready cash makes me wonder if he’s not a Round Hill Road resident. Ric? Walt? You guys still at home?

    I hate those signs. And I know I have asked before, but tell me again why those are all over town but nobody can put up a “FOR SALE” sign?

      First Amendment – political speech, but isn’t removing a sign from public property also political speech?
