Another potential benefit to the Red Sox win

This is an Associated Press photo of Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney removing a sign in Boston that is supposed to read "REVERSE CURVE," but has often been graffitied to read "REVERSE THE CURSE," and which has on this occasion been graffitied with a slightly different message...

According to the AP's caption, the sign has been up for at least 33 years. Now, here's the good news about it being removed: it's nonstandard. It's a warning sign, so according to the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices, it should be black letters on a yellow background. You know, like one of these. So let's hope the Massachusetts Department of Transportation or the city of Boston (I'm not sure who has jurisdiction over that sign) is going to replace it with better signage.
