Dear PoP – Irony

“Dear PoP,

I was a bit miffed to see the city thought it was necessary to block off an entire sidewalk in order to put up a road sign. I saw one elderly lady walk out onto the curb around the lamppost to get by. This is on Randolph Street, westbound from Georgia Avenue, in what I consider primarily a walking neighborhood. There is some irony that the sign is for “no thru traffic” directed at motorists and actually creates the exact same problem for pedestrians. I think they should have at least put another sign on the corner of the intersection warning pedestrians that the sidewalk is closed to pedestrian traffic.”
