* By Garrett Downing, WEWS SPOKANE, WA - Residents in Spokane, Washington received an unpleasant gesture from a street sign as they crossed the street. A crosswalk light displayed an image that looked like the middle finger, rather than a hand to signal for walkers to stop. A storm blew snow into the crosswalk signal, blocking out the pointer, ring and pinky fingers. Only the middle finger and thumb were left visible. C'mon. Funny winter news stories. Give 'em up.
