So I'm standing there Saturday night - At the Longest Goddamn Signal Crossing in America. Having a smoke outside my hotel and I strike up a conversation with a guy about my age (29) LOL!! So - are you here for NN13? Nope, I'm a local and what is this Netroots Nation about? So I explain what it is.

The Longest Goddamn Signal Crossing in America might have changed....but I doubt it.

So he asks me - have you seen our Dog Turd Statue? And gestured across the street. I had to answer well, I have noticed a statue over there, but it never really crossed my mind that it looked like a dog turd. Mind you it was 11:30pm. So it was a bit dark and my overriding concern was to cross the street to The Tanq for an adult beverage.

So my fellow traveller at The Longest Goddamn Signal Crossing in America informs me that taxpayer dollars were used to build this particular statue - and it resembles a dog turd.

He expressed the opinion that taxpayer dollars could have been better spent. I had to commiserate, being that having once lived in Modesto, we spent many taxpayer dollars on a fountain that was not well received. The Longest Goddamn Signal Crossing in America changed and we said our goodbyes.

So follow me below the orange woozle offering....

On Sunday morning, I waited for the Longest Goddamn Signal Crossing in America and took some photos.

So, dear readers - it is up to you! ART or Dog Turd?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
