Signs of the Times
A five-story assemblage of soft-core porn was unveiled in front of Macys at Union Square recently, and the only thought that ran through my head was, "Bend it like Beckham, indeed."
A couple of blocks away, a handwritten note advised pedestrians that "Jesus Returns. Are you invited to the party?"
Meanwhile, at the party which is the San Francisco City Hall gay marriage circus, protestors and supporters were having a field day with each other late Monday afternoon...
...and brandishing offensive signage.
Oddly enough, the shock tactics of the anti-gay marriage protestors remind me of the theatrical ACT UP protests of the 1980s in a distorted, funhouse mirror kind of way.
