    If my old drill Sargent have had been in charge the sign would have read "Ladies working".:)

    Good points. I am offended only by the Braves' fans stupid war chant and tomahawk chop. But maybe because they've been a very good team for a long time.

    Perfect..... but that assumes actual work is being performed.:sure:
    In fairness, many road workers are diligent and bust a gut, but there sure seem to be a lot of featherbedders....

    I've heard many of them refer to their tribal name, too. I like that. We have a very diverse community and the folks from Africa that have just immigrated don't seem to like being lumped into the "African American" thing. They quickly tell you which country they're from, which usually makes for some interesting conversations.

    I haven't heard that pop up for a while. I was disgusted when political pressure forced St. John's to stop calling their basketball team...what was it? The Red Men or The Red Storm?

    Strange world we live in, isn't it?

    Worked on a road crew when I got out of high school. If we worked 2 hours out 8 it was a busy day.

    We had a Middle School here that was forced to change its name from "Jefferson Davis Middle School" to "Palm Springs Middle School". Now that's sad.

    And it's getting stranger every day.

    This same thing happened in Atlanta. They changed their road signs to Workers or Workers Ahead.

    But had I been at that company and received notification that the school's project manager wanted the signs changed, I would have done it and then submitted a change order covering the cost of the new signs and a very hefty profit.
