Stimulus Blamed For Naked Roads (Why Does That Just Sound Wrong?)

Naked roads!! What? Where have Indiana's morals gone? Okay, I guess it's not that bad, but a nationwide shortage of road paint is leaving Indiana's roads bare of stripes and other pavement markings.

And it's all the fault of the federal stimulus funding, according to
this article in the Chicago Tribune.

So far, no word of the shortage affecting our area but if you see workers out with sidewalk chalk, you'll know why.
