they just can't stop it (the games people play)

I was just flipping channels and came across a news story about suburban Oak Lawn. My attention was peaked when the news reader said, "And the Mayor hadn't been drinking. " It seems Oak Lawn Mayor Dave Heilmann came up with a scheme hoping to get drivers to stop at stop signs.

The scheme, that's right, post absurd stop signs. Now, a cheeky stop sign would surely distract me, in my tendency to roll a stop sign, to hit a curb, dumpster, pedestrian, the absurd stop sign — something. Perhaps that's just me?

That said, let's hear it for The Spinners — I just can't stop it.
