Mr. Ragland, 26, lives in the 2700 block of Tobacco Road, according to the Richmond County Sheriff's Office. (Highlight changes)

Why is a traffic light being

Why is a traffic light being removed before the new one can be installed? Sounds like an area to avoid this week.

I am sure that it is W's

I am sure that it is W's fault that the light had to be removed, but there was not exit strategy for it. I guess it is McCain's fault for following the party line and not being elected in time to get the light out safely. It may also be part of Obama's plan for the country and in the future the old lights will not be removed, but simply will change.

This is just a guess but the

This is just a guess but the old traffic light is probably being removed first for many of the same reasons you remove your old refrigerator before you roll in a new refrigerator.
