First blog in nearly a month

There's this sign by the high school, near St. Mary's Cemetary that never fails to humor me.

I always find it funny that they have signs labeled "Hidden Driveway." Why have a hidden driveway if you're going to put a sign in front of it? Okay, I understand that there are probably some practical reasons for its presence, but nonetheless, I think it's mighty ironic.

As for the one by the high school, I've never seen the hidden driveway. Either it references the really obvious driveway it's next to, or the driveway is, as the sign would suggest, really well hidden.

On a different note, I've heard a lot of talk these days about Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the leader of the IMF who was arrested on charges of a criminal sex act, attempted rape, and unlawful imprisonment. That's bad news for this French Socialist who was widely considered the strongest potential challenger next year to President Nicolas Sarkozy.

Yea, he messed up. At this point, it doesn't even really matter whether or not he gets convicted - the damage has already been made to his political career. Even if he is cleared, he will have lost months of valuable campaigning time, etc. Imagine the field day his campaign managers must be having...

No, there was no real train of thought to my blog today, but either way, it's my
First blog in nearly a month.

  1. Lol Anna I've thought that before too hehe I run by it all the time for track/XC, but you know what makes it even more ironic? The fact that the "hidden driveway" sign implies that there will be parked cars. haha :D
