Now you see 'em . . .
Now you don't . . .
All the "No Dogs Allowed" signs in the Public Square (a.k.a. Seventh Street Park) disappeared in the early hours of the morning and were replaced by signs reminding dog walkers that they must pick up after their dogs. Even the sign warding off vagabond dogs entering the park by train has disappeared. How this came to pass is not known. Did the mayor change his mind? Did he realize that posting a sign does not make it so? Was there a misunderstanding about the nature of the signs he wanted installed? Whatever happened to bring it about, this is a gift horse we probably shouldn't be looking in the mouth.
There's one cloud on the horizon though for canine rights. Gossips has received word that "No Dogs Allowed" signs have now been installed at the cemetery.
