Stop Sign

No, that notorious “Support Our Troops” sign standoff in Westchase has not quietly faded from the public eye. In fact, look for it to be prominently aired next week on “The Daily Show,” Comedy Central’s faux news program.

To recap, Stacey Kelley won’t take down her patriotic front-yard sign that’s at odds with her community’s deed restrictions. She rejected a good-faith compromise, told the neighborhood association to “bring it on,” agreed to representation by First Amendment/adult business specialist Luke Lirot and generally seemed to revel in the notoriety.

Now the last laugh may be Jon Stewart’s.

Some issues deserve better than that.
