De gustibus non est disputandum

That was the title to a recent editorial section that addressed a dispute about ugliness vs. utility of some new road signs.  I’m not going there, as I don’t typically don’t agree with either of the parties involved.  But I do agree with the title, taste is a personal thing that cannot be argued.

My favorite related slogan, perhaps useful in application of the above to real matters, comes from Starkist:

Sorry Charlie, Starkist doesn’t want tunas with good taste, they want tunas that taste good.

    OK ..ugliness aside..for these eight signs with in less than a half mile..that are sutiable for I-95….
    as to utility…who needs so many signs Warrning a driver that “pavements ends” ? On this less than
    high count traffic road.
    The change in road condition is clearly evident both by site and sound.
    Simply a waste of tax dollars be it federal or not…simply busy work to add to the list

    OK, just to be perfectly clear, I have absolutely no opinion about the sign issue. If people want to start a thread about it, have at it, but I’ll close it down after a day or so.
