PlOW


Sweet MAlYA couldn't believe it when she learned she had been passing by this sign, unnoticed, on the Upper West Side of Manhattan nearly every day of the winter ... while going out with Mr. lowercase L himself (me!)  This warning to trucks, advising them to RAISE PlOW, would have been less confusing if the OW — both letters that are the same in both upper and lowercase form — were bottom justified instead of top justified to the lowercase L.  That might explain the metal scraping Malya heard out her window all winter long.
