Editor’s Corner: Pole, pole, ,and poll

I’ve been trying to figure out how to incorporate my favorite photo from New York into an Editor’s Corner and nothing is coming easily. One of my partners in crime (thank you, Keith) suggested that I do an article on homophones and assisted me with some Internet photos—so that’s what I’m going with. Today’s words are Pole, pole, and poll, with definitions from Merriam-Webster.

Yes, this is a long way to go so I can show you my subway sign.

· Pole (abbreviation for Polish): A person from Poland.

And finally, my sign:
