  1. We were up in the night from the incessant hum so I won’t be commuting into work today. Which is too bad because I would LOVE to have seen the R74 supporters! Here’s my “HONK HONK” of support!

  2. I miss the personal signs, like welcome home and happy birthday, that used to be attached to the bridge. What pencil-pushing pinhead decided to make it illegal?

  3. Thank you so much R74 supporters for going out to hold signs! If we are interested in helping hold signs – any idea who I would contact locally?

    Broke my heart and made me feel so angry to see the giant red Reject R74 banner held out yesturday morning so hearing that supporters were out today to balance it out makes me feel a little better. Thank you and ‘honk honk’!

  4. Curiouser, the signs always were illegal but the law was never enforced until a very ill tempered resident moved into Admiral and began enforcing the sign ban herself. She has single handedly eliminated a great West Seattle tradition. Huge bummer in my opinion that we let this happen!

  5. Driving past the people holding the Approve R74 signs this morning was a great way to start my day! I waved and honked, and I wasn’t the only one. Thanks so much folks. Let’s get this done!

  8. Thanks for taking back the Fauntleroy walkover with a great message.

    And shame on the one person who singlehandedly killed a great tradition.
