Sign warns Illinois drivers about zombies

You know after hearing some bad news about the state's fiscal picture and last week's removal of Rod Blagojevich as Governor. Some of you may laugh at this story, perhaps some of you won't. Still I hope you have a sense of humor.

This story is from KSDK:

Drivers in the Metro East were warned about zombies during their Tuesday morning commute.


This happened on 1-255 Southbound just south of the Pontoon Beach exit. Someone changed IDOT's sign to read "DAILY LANE CLOSURES DUE TO ZOMBIES."


IDOT believes someone hacked the sign's computer remotely. While crewmembers were still on the scene after fixing the message, the display changed back to the hoax.


"We've talked to the company that supplies these and they have a patch out there they've applied to the program to fix the problem," said Joe Gasaway with the Illinois Department of Transportation.
It was noted that something similar already happened in Austin, TX.

The image I found is from the New York Daily News, which adds...

Such pranks are a no-no because they distract drivers from real life road hazards and could endanger road crews, said Joe Gasaway of the Illinois Department of Transportation. 
 Aside from that engaging in such a prank could result...

In Illinois, tampering with an official traffic control device is a misdemeanor punishable by up to a $250 fine.
Well I hope who ever did this had their fun!

Why no flag pins?

I found this cartoon over at Uptown Avenger. I'm not sure what the Governor is doing in this cartoon with a caricature of Charles Gibson. All the same this is a hilarious cartoon even if the Governor wasn't in it. Of course we know who the debaters are Abe Lincoln and Stephen Douglas. I suppose mocking the debate on Wednesday between Hillary and Obama.

EDITED: Thanks to the commentors one of whom were absolutely insulting proving that they have nothing better than to insult someone they don't know on the internet I have deduced that the small man with the governor's hairstyle is George Stephanopoulos.
