On April 3, the Press Herald published “Our View: Highway signs are not supposed to be advertisements,” an argument for removing or relocating a number of the brown signs along Interstate 95 that direct travelers to specific points of interest.

Among the signs mentioned was the one for the Shaker Village in Gray. This point of view was clearly endorsed by the Legislature, which has passed the law making these changes.

Now comes your Editor of Anger, Bill Nemitz, making a plea for the Shaker Village (“Shakers seek special designation on Maine Turnpike signs,” June 18). Where was he in April? And why is the Shaker Village any different from others similarly affected?
