too much typing—since 2003


punctuated disequilibrium

This is an actual sign, located about a mile from my house:
I truly have no idea what the sign painter was thinking here - perhaps this is merely a slip of the brush, an artistic flourish?

Say, haven't I seen that sign? Is it on Howell or Chase, whatever, in the general vicinity of Humboldt Park? And are you saying that's an apostrophe? Perhaps it's an accent aigu.

That's where it is, yes. Someone theorized that the sign used to say something else...but what? Dog's Eye? I'm trying to figure out what that might have been - but it's been this way for at least the last six years, so clearly no hurry to correct it!
