I was running some errands last weekend along a busy suburban road, and as an inveterate (and involuntary) reader, I found myself noticing not only the plethora of garage sale signs that sprung up over the weekend, but also several advertising signs new to my eyes. “Playground falls can lead to lifelong injury,” warns the sign out in front of an acupuncture office. “Grades too low? Get help before exams!” exhorts a sign 50 or so yards down the road, posted in front of a franchised tutoring business.
