Hi Jay,

In reply to: Uh, Oh, Mac...

Although the existance of the signs surprised me, the content does not. I seriously doubt your thoughts escaped whoever designed the signs.

I can almost believe the ACLU, at least in this case, should believe in ''don't let the sun set on your head''. It might not be politically correct, but is yet very real in many places about many things.

In a predominately Roman Catholic community; where the mission church is an ''anchor'', and holds great infuence; where hispanic pride and passion runs strong, I doubt the citizenry would take kindly to outside interference. The idea that ''someone could get hurt'' is not beyond imagination. Our calendars might be current, but there is an amount of activity in this State that transports one back to "frontier days", particularly with "Old Mexico" so accessible.

Albeit subtle, ''Deguello'' is alive and well.
(''Deguello'' (de-gway-o) is the name of the battle charge sounded by General Santa Anna's buglers when his Mexican army attacked the Alamo fortress in 1836. ''Deguello'' is also symbolized by a blood-red flag. Roughly translated, it means ''No Quarter''. No Mercy.)

Those are solid concrete, set deep into the ground. The
lettering, etc, are "engraved" and painted.
