John, unfortunately we didn't have the government printing professionally made signs for us. Part of the fun is being creative and making your own. Sorry you didn't approve. There's a tea party in Pleasanton on Saturday. Perhaps you could bring some of your art and display it on the corner with us. Of course we might be critical.
