“The ramblings and grumblings of author Ad Hudler”

On good signage, less is more.

This is a new sign near the big bridge at the northernmost point of the Natchez Trace Parkway, outside Nashville. Over the years, about 150 people have jumped from the bridge to end their lives.
I thought this was beautifully handled, as far as the writing goes.

Am I looking at this pic wrong? I understand about the sign, but am I the only one who sees that the man in the background wearing brown shorts appears to have only one leg? Great balancing skills if true!

Haha! It does look that way, doesn't it? Upon further scrutiny one can see that the gray-stone wall is hiding his other leg.
