I would like you to tell your readership about a new sign that I have convinced the City of Alameda to install in front of my house. All I had to do was to tell the Department of Public Works that I am a taxpayer, and I vote. I learned that trick from your noosepaper!
This sign should do away with all my ne'er-do-well neighbors who continually insist on parking their cars in front of MY house! They think the street in front of my house is public property—well, it's not! I paid for this house in 1947 and that includes the land all around it! Of course, I park all three of my cars in my driveway (it's a beauty—it widens into a triple-wide space in my back yard) but I reserve the right to park in front of my house on the street if I should feel like it one day.
Now that this sign is in front of my house, I will be calling 911 just as soon as I see anybody dare to even slow down in its vicinity! That will teach them a lesson!
I encourage all Right-Thinking Alamedans to call the Department of Public Works and get one of these installed in front of your own house!
