We can't take credit for the photo included in this post, but every once in a while one of our four readers sent us something that makes us take note.
We believe that the sign in this post is located on the US 77-83 frontage road approaching the intersection of McDavitt
leading to the Gladys Porter Zoo.
We're sure that one wouldn't have to go too far to find signs with misplaced possessives mistaken for plurals, or, in this case, the name of a person being turned into a possessive.
The shame of it is that the signs on the frontage roads are placed there by State of Texas crews with the Texas Dept. of Transportation. One could probably overlook municipal and nominally bilingual county Public Works crews messing up like this, but a state crew with its well-paid supervisors?
We remember when the Brownsville Herald would run a photo feature of misspelled signs around town, but that was a personal mania of Bill Salter, the city editor at the time. It might be time to dust off that section of the paper again.
Don't you think so, Glady?
