As spied today on East 7th Street. On a related note (and in closing), I want to give a shout-out to this piece by Jilly Ballistic…
and thank her for giving one! I hung it next to our front door (underneath a sign reading “Want Candy”*) for the edification of trick or treaters as I was handing out chocolaty goodness yesterday. It elicited some interesting responses. For example:
What is a Banksy?
And (from a woman amused by this, after I told her about the previous):
How did he not know? Doesn’t he read the news?
I guess not.
*Some of the responses to this were quite fascinating. But that is the subject of another post— perhaps even an essay.
