I've always been amazed at the importance some folks put on political yard signs. When was the last time you knew of someone who told you, "Well, I was planning on voting for X Candidate until I saw Y Candidate's be-yoo-ti-ful yard signs, and, well, I knew I had to change my vote"? The religious right and LGBT community exchange yard sign allegations each time one of our issues is on the ballot. This North Carolina bigot, Alex Wiles, takes things a step further though by deliberately trying to intimidate those who oppose the proposed anti-gay amendment by shooting one and then posting it on YouTube. What other message is he sending other than "You'll be next?"
