    I guess it's okay. I'm not really much of a rainbow or bright color person. Why can't the gay color be something like a low-key slate grey or chocolate brown?

    That's because you come from Detroit which has road salt, and cold, harsh winters that would take a damaging toll on the rainbow color crosswalks. The same here in Buffalo.

    What? Detroit? Well, I never! I am from Royal Oak. Detroit ends at 8 Mile and Royal Oak starts at 10 Mile. There's a two mile buffer between Royal Oak and that other city.

    Hmph, who'd think we'd be lagging behind WeHo in stylish crosswalks? Although I do think ours look better.

    I would not be surprised if both Palm Springs and San Diego get these unique rainbow crosswalks sometime in the near future.

    The twist: This has nothing to do with the LGBT. It's a new Skittles promotion.

    And now... I want some. icon_lol.gif

I am sure that will get all the FLAKY FUNDAMENTALISTS in a real uproar. All interstate and US route markers would not be affected by this signage change, only Alabama state routesicon_biggrin.gificon_lol.gif
