New York Shitty Photo Du Jour: NOTORIOUS

When I saw this at Union Square yesterday afternoon I simply had to ask the wearer if I may take a photo of it. She gladly agreed and noted that while the Notorious RBG elicits a lot curiosity, very few know what this is “about”. GOD BLESS AMERICA. Or, as I later opined to the Mister:

I wonder how many people in this country do not even know we have a Supreme Court— wait, I probably do not want to know this.

In any case, you those of you who are so inclined should check out the rather entertaining Notorious R.B.G. web site and I am linking to this, this and this because this is my blog and I find them entertaining. So there.

New York Shitty Photos Du Jour: Good Friday Tidings From Union Square

Or: What is wrong with this picture?

Today the Mister took the day off and we opted to take a sojourn into “the city”. Our first stop was Union Square. There we saw a number of fascinating things. Follows are a few selections.

This young lady who— for reasons which do not need to be outlined— elicited a great deal of “interest”.

And this fellow, Felix Morelo, drawing faces (as he is known to do) with sidewalk chalk. They lead to the “Kissing Spot”.

Here he is giving yours truly a “thumbs up”.

And here he is getting a verbal reprimand from this public space’s rent-a-cops and parks staff. They were not amused.

It was explained to Mr. Morelo that he is not to engage in this (clearly) disruptive, destructive behavior because they would have to clean it up.

Once again, gentle readers: he was drawing a “Kissing Spot”. With sidewalk chalk. You want to know why yours truly dislikes public/private parks “partnerships”, gentle readers? You just saw it. Sure, the proponents this arrangement like to extol upon its financial benefits. However, there is a down-side to this kind of thing: “gate-keepers” are brought in to enforce “standards”— and those standards can (and often do) reach this level of utter absurdity. Sue Bee said it best:

Sidewalk chalk. Are you fucking kidding me?
