Robin Hordon recently took to the sidewalk of the intersection of Highway 305 and High School Road to greet the rush of commuters coming from the ferry terminal with his political signage.

“I keep very accurate count,” he explained. “About 80 percent of the people see me, or they see something, and about 20 percent give me feedback. Of that 20 percent, I’ve got a 200 to one positive to negative response ration. These are good days.”

Hordon’s signs encourage passers by to research the “Greater Israel Project” and ask “Did you know a third tower fell on 9-11?”

He said he makes such appearances in various locations “two or three times a week.”
