No Catchphrase Left Behind






George W. Bush is in the background, flubbing phrases like "baby boomer," "natural disaster" and "youth initiatives," stumbling over words such as "conscience," "resources" and "judges," and yet his delivery of the words EVIL and CREATOR ring out loud and clear, with an eerie, calm pride.

Roadside signs brought to you by: Pittsburgh, PA; Mt. Hope, PA; Brownsville, PA and Connellsville, PA.

This series is really great + powerful when
viewed after reading the post.
But you really can't blame George.
It's just that we are living in a time when someone
like George can actually become President.

Like these pictures all in a row it's quite sad.
America is dying a slow quick death.

But, alas all hope is not lost.

Ahhhhhhh yes, I have always been curious about that joint! Hilarious name. I always pass the place during thrift store outings along Route 30. I will try and link this to our Pittsburgh Signs Project web gallery!
Have you checked that out? www.pittsburghsigns.org.

How cool! I loved the old "Atari Service Center" photo.

Me too! I also think it was painted over, which breaks my heart. I lived within walking distance of that sign and foolishly never snapped a shot, so I am thrilled someone added it to the PSP!
