If You've Got the Money, Honey....

.....We Ain't Got the Time....

For years, the local bank displayed the time and temperature on a revolving sign. The name of the bank changed 3 or 4 times, but the sign remained a constant landmark. A few years ago, the time quit working. This spring, the downtown merchants got up a petition to show the community's interest in restoring the sign to its full functionality, and duly presented it to the newest owners of the bank.

Hey, you gotta love corporate responsiveness. They tore the whole thing down and put up this really unique sign, just like the really unique sign at the branch in the next town up the road, and the next, and the next..... No temperature and no time. Just some damned stylized plastic stagecoach. That's progress for you.
