The Vox Box

Chicago suburb shakes up stop signs

Quote the Yahoo! article:

The new signs are red octagons, just like the real stop signs, but instead of just “Stop” they say “Stop … right there pilgrim” and “Stop … in the naame of love.” Naame? Think of the drawn-out pronunciation in the hit by the Supremes.

It might be too soon to know whether the alternative signs will work. But while the mayor was posing for a photo with one of the new signs, a driver sped by without stopping.

I thought that end sentence was pretty funny. I’m not sure I have an incredibly deep question to draw from this, but it made me laugh. It’s worth trying, at least?

About this blog

In 2006, then-editor Steve Smith of The Spokesman-Review had the idea of starting a publication for an often forgotten audience: teenagers. The Vox Box was a continuation of the Vox, an all-student staffed newspaper published by The Spokesman-Review. High school student journalists who staffed the Vox made all content decisions as they learn about the trade of journalism. This blog's mission was to give students an opportunity to publish their voices. The Vox Box and the Vox wrapped up in June 2009, but you can follow former staffers' new blog at http://voxxiez.blogspot.com.
