Sign, sign, everywhere a sign

It took a while, but the campaign signs at long last are littering Alabama's roadways like kudzu. It's technically illegal to place them along interstates or state highways, but officials almost never enforce those laws. Tired of the aesthetic pollution, Blount County resident Greg Caudle has decided to take matters into his own hands, organizing a group of two or three dozen sign pullers via his website,

Caudle, who removed 144 signs in three hours the other day, said the problem is rampant: "I have every candidate for governor and lieutenant governor. The Supreme Court candidates are bad, too." He also scoffed at the idea that sign removal could affect an election outcome: "The idea that someone would cast their vote based on a corrugated plastic sign is ridiculous to me."
