Signs, Signs (The New One at the Bridge)

People are already in town ahead of this weekend's big events.

These women from Atlanta took pictures of the Edmund Pettus Bridge
 and the brand-new sign just erected by the Alabama Tourism Department.
 The sign updates Selma's history to include not only the 50th anniversary
 of "Bloody Sunday"and date of the Voting Rights Act but the 2007 campaign visits
 by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton as well as the recent "Selma" movie.

Linking to Signs, Signs
