I am pretty sure that the only part of my statement that couldn't be argued was the fact that the sign was on private property.

Also, as a business owner, it didn't affect his business at all. He understood his place is a tourist location, not a local restaurant meant to serve the locals. I would imagine the sign increased his press and business. I also support the learning of English when someone immigrates to the USA. It only makes sense.
