Drunken Youth Bush Needs Friendly Help
At least two of the four bus shelters on the corners of Van Ness and McAllister Streets were featuring some very weird signage on Saturday. There was the official "public interest" glossy photo of a cute tyke with the instructions to "start talking before they start drinking" because these innocent children could actually be roaring drunk.
As odd and discordant as that particular ad campaign might be, the bizarreness was simply heightened by two sheets of 8-1/2x11 white paper with a paranoid, though not necessarily untrue, message on one page and a strangely poignant request on the other.
They were both pasted to the sidewalk.
