To North Kansas City: Thank you for looking out for the public interest and keeping the roads safe from the Liberty Tax Service wavers (1/10, Local, “Tax service wavers may be forced to wave ‘bye’.”). I know that I, for one, am an incompetent driver who is easily distracted, and the sight of a live Lady Liberty waving at me is bound to have me careening off the road.
Franchise owner Arthur Griffin should have realized that his marketing strategy puts many of his fellow citizens at great risk. Those waving Uncle Sams are just a hazard.
I also know of several Liberty Tax Services that are owned by immigrants. What a great picture of the United States to have an immigrant dressed as Uncle Sam waving at you. But let’s stop that foolishness. It’s just not safe!
On another note: Can anyone do something about those darn trees changing color every fall? I find the beautiful foliage very distracting as I am driving.
