Proper Spelling

January 16th, 2014

So, this week is SHOT Show in Las Vegas. The ATF maintains a booth there, and someone thought it would be witty to do this:

ATF Sign Defaced

Of course, when one considers the fact that our tax dollars paid for that sign, the joke's on us. I'm sure this brave and clear act of civil disobedience inspired a road to Damascus moment among the agents present. I wouldn't be surprised if it made the entire agency consider a change in mission and philosophy, and…

Yeah. Um, no.

While we're at it, the correct spelling is "Molon Labe." Molon. Spelling and grammar really do count, children.

    Maybe the vandal was a big fan of Stan Molan, famous Australian football player. Or illiterate. I tend to look on the bright side.
