Removing mom's signs brings scorn to Cape

People from across the United States and as far away as Nova Scotia spent Wednesday telling Cape Coral officials they're un-American, communists and Nazis ? among other things.

The name calling came in an onslaught of e-mail that blasted a city worker for removing signs and yellow ribbons a mother had posted to greet her U.S. Army daughter as she returned home from Iraq.

After receiving more than 100 e-mails, city officials went into damage control.

"We now have to try to defuse the situation and prevent an effigy of our part-time employee, an 82-year-old WWII veteran, from being burned across the country," public information officer Connie Barron e-mailed.

The outcry arose after self-described Web site newsman Matt Drudge posted an Internet link on his site, the Drudge Report, to a story about the incident in The News-Press

this seems petty you would think an excemption could have been made as this wasnt the normal signs the ones you norm see like rooms for rent etc.
