Nebraska's Signs Of Life

Everyone writes off Nebraska Avenue as a dangerous road going through bad neighborhoods, but occasionally I'll bike along Nebraska -- like this afternoon, for example -- and I've never had a problem. In fact, I'm fascinated by the businesses, which have equally fascinating signs.

No one said the business owners were experts with punctuation. Doesn't everyone confuse an apostrophe with a comma?

Religious sayings are usually on signs in front of churches but this one was painted on the side of a vacant building. The messages can be strident, or catchy, or just plain earnest. This one should have an accompanied statement for those who measure stuff in metric.
