Moron(s) of the Day

From the SouthWest Florida News Press:

[Kelly] Smith, 44, and her friends put up a cardboard "Welcome Back Soldier" sign — the size of a desktop calendar — in the median strip along Country Club Boulevard to greet U.S. Army Pfc. Amanda Smith, 19, as she approached home.

Besides the sign, 500 yellow ribbons on knee-high stakes lined the roadside for about two miles from the Smith house just south of Nicholas Parkway to Veterans Memorial Parkway. They also put ribbons in the median for the 2003 Cape Coral High School graduate.

A code compliance officer came along and took the sign down and some of the ribbons.

The city shrugged off the initial complaints, but after being deluged with emails and phone calls are trying to wipe the egg off their face.
