Ohio woman discovers new wasteful government program – crossing signs for animals:

Signs that read “Deer Crossing” and the like are going to continue to pop up throughout our country including Avon Lake, but who are these signs for? Deer cannot read, do not obey the law and probably will cross where they wish. Although adorable companions, it is hard to remember the last time that the news reported an animal talking, thinking or providing significant input for the benefit of society. Yet, these signs cost taxpayers like so much of government.

What else could the signs be for, if not for the animals themselves?

The author of this op-ed turns out to have lots of interesting pro-freedom ideas.
