Tan Nguyen Finally, Not Completely, Gone

About a year ago, I wrote a story about a campaign sign for failed Congressional candidate Tan Nguyen that stood on a phone pole on the corner of 17th and Durant streets in SanTana long after losing to Loretta Sanchez.

The sign stood for months after we published article--like, this past fall afterwards. Like, I didn't have any doubt about where that sign would be when I walked by 17th and Durant today. Imagine my surprise, then, when the Nguyen sign was no longer there. But, in his campaign's everlasting ineptitude, a sliver of the South Vietnam yellow-colored sign remained, along with the letter N.

Even in defeat, Nguyen can only half-ass his way out of our lives once and for all.
