“Dear PoPville,

I saw this Halloween display on Woodley Rd near the Marriott. It looked like a very cool Halloween decoration from the road (it’s a mummy scarecrow, there are crows but the lighting was terrible at night so it was hard to capture them).

The sign on it says “This is a most tasteless display and sign (note: “sign” has a strike through). 4500 people have died and countless are grappling with it. Please be compassionate.”

I’m guessing the 4500 is referring to Ebola victims, but why the need for the sign? Does anyone out there know if there was another sign on it before that said “Ebola victim” or something, and that’s why the word “sign” is crossed out? I regret not having flipped this one over while I had the chance to see if the other side said anything antagonistic or controversial.”
