There’s some rather interesting material to be found on the fence gracing one of yours truly’s favorite derelict construction sites (formerly known as “Poo Corner”)…

Special thanks/props go out to a very nice lady named Jennifer for giving yours truly a(n accidental) reminder by bringing this to my attention.

AS you can see, the local wildlife do not seem to find it terribly compelling…

Spotted On Manhattan Avenue: Moondog*

Into ongoing traffic

Moondog

idiot running a red light

Fact learned yesterday evening while crossing Manhattan Avenue: apparently wearing some hybrid of a Mongolian and Viking helmet absolves you of obeying traffic laws. I realize the photographs are not great. I can assure there is a reason for this:

  • I was crossing the street in accordance with the traffic signal.
  • The above woman (who clearly had no intention of stopping) narrowly avoided hitting yours truly.
  • Instead, she veered into oncoming traffic on India Street where she almost hit a motorist (who was following the traffic laws and actually got out of her way).

This is how you become a statistic folks…

*For those of you who are not in the know as to who this fellow is, this should clear things up.
