Let me say that above all I am appalled by that the fact that some missing signs concerning the layoffs in Costa Mesa resulted in money being spent to hire a private investigator to nail the thieves. In the scale of what is going on in the city, missing signs is the least important issue I can think of. What was the goal? If someone, anyone, told these kids to steal these signs, both the kids and the director of said mischief suffer the wrath of being complete idiots. Isn’t that punishment enough? If anyone is feeling left out, I have two signs in my yard. I’ll give you one.
