I thought your disdain might have been for referring to human beings as "that," which the signmaker had to work hard to set up an opportunity to use (isn't "I never met a happy adult who was allowed to quit as a child" simpler?). And we all "quit as a child" -- we grow up.

M. George,

Love the last sentence. Yes. And good catch; there's a lot of objectification in that kind of right-wing "folk wisdom," lots of "that"s and "they"s. The "that"s say a lot.


Great, true, funny, compassionate post.
