REILY: Ban on political yard signs makes Diamondhead community a shining star

It’s election time again — that time when candidates from every political party and persuasion are littering neighborhoods with signs pimping themselves to who ever drives or walks past.

The proper word to be used here is litter. Political signs in yards are uglier than Jim Hood’s hair at 5 a.m. — you get the picture.

It makes my stomach turn to see the signs. It ruins my day. … If you can’t tell, political yard signs are not my favorite thing in the world.

So, I was excited to see a story in Biloxi’s Sun Herald stating that the town of Diamondhead on the Coast has a restriction on political yard signs.
