From The New York Shitty Inbox: Joint SLA Committee & Public Safety Committee Meeting This Thursday!

gothamistSCThere it is, the list of applications and renewals in its resplendent glory! While I am vaguely on the subject of public safety, I found this (at left) news to be quite disconcerting— but sadly not exactly surprising. What is surprising, however, is a response I got from someone who I had inquired as to where NYC issue condoms can be found/had hereabouts:

Perhaps Dewey can fish some out of Newtown Creek for you?

But seriously, I was going to direct you to the online condom directory, but
alas, when I put in the 11222 zip code, there were no locations to be found.
And then they wonder why people in the area don’t use them…

And, as our very own Public Safety Chair added:

Perhaps BABAR (Brooklyn Allied Bars And Restaurants — Ed. Note) could be prodded into encouraging its member bars to put out fishbowls of them at all thier bars. This is the easiest and most effective way to distribute them and I am sure the Health Department would send cartons of them to BABAR to distribute to their member bars. Social responsibility may not be ironic enough without prodding…

P.S.: Lest you are wondering why, gentle readers, yours truly was interested in access to free condoms. It is for a little art project I am working on (inspired by this)

There ain’t candy in these here Easter eggs. This Easter Bunny wants Greenpoint to practice safe(r) sex. Really folks…
