Don't Graffiti My Trail, Bro

I don't care if you love or hate President Obama. It's a free country. What I do care about is all the political graffiti splattered along the public bike trails in Omaha. I ride my bike in part for exercise and in part to get away from the world for a couple hours. That's hard to do when the benches, signs, and the trail itself proclaim that "Obama is a nut (acorn)" and "Obama is a joker" not to mention the ones that can't be repeated in a family blog.

Do us all a favor. If you hate him or love him, it really doesn't matter, paint your slogans and propaganda on your front door. Paint them on your house walls. Hell, paint them in big, florescent letters on your roof. Just keep them off our public bike trails.
