This sign comes from Rescue Reston, a group dedicated to preventing homes for people who need them, in favor of protecting views of a golf course.

Incredibly, the sign makers didn't camouflage their message: Views for the rich matter more than homes for people.

Could there be a more perfect rallying cry to build these 1,000 homes? GGWash's Jane Green says it best: “What do you do when both sides of a debate use the same signs?”
