Superior woman's 'ex-husband sale' stops traffic

A public display of anger over love gone wrong — or a celebration over a marriage ended — caused traffic delays in a Superior neighborhood Wednesday. Large signs were posted in a yard reading “X-HUSBAND SALE” and “FREE” by a pile of discarded belongings. An SUV with “cheater” and obscenities spray-painted all over it slowed traffic. Police hauled the vehicle away.
