Wink Then Walk

People get hit by cars a lot in West Hollywood. It is a combination of really shitty drivers, pedestrains that make up their own rules, and folks on bicycles that weave in and out of traffic and the sidewalk as if they are the only ones there. Today at the bus stop I saw a poster for safety when crossing streets. “Wink then walk.” I have no problem with that. “Make eye contact with drivers before you cross the street.” Okay, still good. Its the last line that gets me. “What happens next is up to you.” Oh, come on now! Does everything in WeHo have to be about sex?! 

I remember in the porn shop seeing ads for every holiday and it being about sex. Thanksgiving? Buff guy with dick in turkey. 4th of July? Firecracker wrapped cock. Christmas? Guess what? Dick in a box! Does this city really need an ad with a shirtless guy crossing the street and unbuckling his belt? Seriously, West Hollywood. Get your shit together. 

Handle this homeless problem. Put up that goddamn Walgreen's. Make the traffic lights work in equal times because when people know the light they need only lasts 11 seconds compared to three minutes of the other they tend to speed and blow through lights. Oh, and hurry up and complete that ugly, gigantic parking lot at City Hall that I doubt citizens will be allowed to park in.
