One of our roving correspondents sent us an unusual photo this week. We love submissions. We don't always use them, but we love them so please keep 'em coming.
This is the new signage at the rest room near the Washington Park tennis courts and baseball field. I'm not really sure where to start with this so I'll start with the correspondent's commentary:
New signage at the tennis courts. Someone must be getting paid by the letter. Why not treat people as adults and buy a nice cheap sign at Ace Hardware that says "Toilet"? Plus the signs are confusing: Is there a bath there? (No) And why do we need two signs next to each other? Is there a regulation that says one must be square and the other triangular?
Having used this facility a few times myself, my thoughts are 1) it's a "one-holer" with a good lock so is there really any gender issue at issue here? 2) I would much prefer to see a sign that says "One person at a time except caregivers" since that is the most likely problem to occur at that spot. 3) Let's hope this signage doesn't spread into the nearby Rec Center where it would really open a can of worms.

Sign, sign, everywhere a sign
Blockin' out the scenery, breakin' my mind
Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign?
