As I was driving down 24th Street in Quincy the other day I was reminded of a huge hit on the radio years ago. That song was called "Signs" from a band called the Five Man Electrical Band. It was a popular tune back in 1971 and featured a lyric of "signs, signs, everywhere there's a sign". That line fits today some 49 years later. As I was driving I couldn't help noticing all of the individual signs that are adorning our Quincy streets these days. So I decided to count all the signs I drove past just from Harrison to Broadway on 24th Street last week.

In just that small stretch of area there were signs about Illinois' Governor Pritzker, First Responders, Teachers, Real Estate, Quincy not being Chicago to signs saying a local church loves me to encouraging power washing of your home.  The total amount of signs I counted was 40.

If you think that is a lot, wait until the political signs start going up as we get closer to the November election. There will definitely be "signs, signs, everywhere a sign".
