So I am running on the bluff and I see a bunch of these signs:

After about the 20th one, I see a man with a hammer pounding one in.
"This is a park area. You can't put your signs here."
"What do you mean?"
"I mean it's a place where you can't put up political signs."
"What do you mean?"
"You see that thing that you pounded into the ground? That's called a 'sign.' The ground you pounded it into, well, that's a 'park.' Your sign placement might be seen as an ironic indictment against charter schools."
"I thought this was a public thoroughfare."
"Look. You can do what you want. It's not like I am going to call the cops. It's just that your actions may be counterproductive for the effect you're trying to achieve." Then I shook his hand and wished him well.
The Friends of the Bluff were doing a big clean up, so I stopped and talked to an organizer who reaffirmed that this is a park, and as such, no political signs are allowed.

You see, the public school system failed the man, since he does not understand that the law prohibits him from putting political signs in a public park. Therefore, ANY political sign in a public park must be an endorsement of charter schools!
