It's a sign of the times

Another sign in a window has people upset. This time the sign is in a window in a campaign office in Minnesota. Todays report in the NYTimes claims a volunteer for a Democratic Gubernatorial candidate, State Senator Steve Kelley placed the sign in the office window.

The sign sites the number of wounded, killed in the war and the duration of the war. The problem is the campaign office is next to an Army reruiting office. Evidentially it upsets the recruiters to have the sign next door, to pass it on their way to work....more importantly for recruits to pass it.
The man who made the sign has been asked to make more and market them.

Sign me up.

FYI the current American dead since March 2003 is 2172.
