I went to a local Cleveland cemetery, Lakeview, to see Charles W. Chesnutt’s grave. As he is a well known early Twentieth Century African-American writer, I was curious as to how he was memorialized. His grave was down the hill from the larger monuments to Rockefeller and Garfield in a location with greater proximity to a freight train line than any view of Lake Erie, but it did have a historical marker (with his name misspelled).
A random question regarding language and typically male words.
I was driving down the road and saw this sign. I began to wonder do highway departments use different “Men Working” signs if there is a woman on the crew? Do some states use “People Working” or “Workers Ahead”? There was actually a Time piece on this issue and it seems in Georgia the offending signs were replaced. I guess that campaign has not reached Northeast Ohio yet.
