New parking signs have also been installed to "wonder about them and find them puzzling". For example: "If you’re reading this sign, You’re reading this sign". "Soft Boots" for cars, made of soft fabric and stuffed, will be placed on select cars throughout the city.

http://www.zigsterreport.com

Its pretty obvious that if the US president did not have the amount of security he does cushioning him from the consequences of the decisions he makes then he’d be a great deal more cautious when it comes to the decisions he makes. Same comes for the British Prime Minister & many other heads of state. But its with the US president where the issue of security always seems a bigger deal & of course it’s US presidents (past & present) who embroil the US military in wars around the globe which have cost the US taxpayer far more then the direct cost of the US presidents security entourage.

WASHINGTON -- Shoppers can often save big buying online instead of at the local mall. But a chunk of the savings comes at the expense of state and local governments, in the form of sales taxes that are not paid on many Web purchases.
