Sheriff Tyrone Lewis posted a billboard last week to wish his constituents in Hinds County a happy day of love. The sign features Lewis in a dapper suit and red tie with roses and candy in the background. Local media have been commenting on his romantic choice of outreach.
Imagining the sheriff as a knight on a white horse who can sweep citizens off their feet and out of dangerous situations is one way to make the community feel safe. The Clarion-Ledger reported the sheriff chuckled when reporters asked him about the billboard.

For reasons that evade logical explanation, everything is funnier when it's on a billboard. Take San Diego millionaire Marc Paskin, who posted a sign before Christmas saying all he wanted for Christmas was a Latina girlfriend.
A image of his face greeted drivers with a smile but the picture was cropped at a strange part of his neck so that it was unclear if he was wearing a shirt or not. Many observers noted, however, that if anyone deserved a Latino girlfriend for Christmas, it was this generous philanthropist.
