Of Human Signage

There’s a virtual proliferation of small businesses in Los Angeles who deploy people dressed up in all manner of costumes into the streets to act as human billboards. I have to say, as a former member of the United Steelworkers of America Local 1211, I find this to be very dehumanizing. In Los Angeles? Where you are judged by what luxury car you drive? You really are that desperate and heartless to use people in this way?

Oh well. If you’re thinking I’m not doing them any favors either, it’s an infinitesimal fraction of eyeballs that will see these pictures here, believe me, compared to the tens of thousands that drive by these people in a few hours. But I think if you’re in other parts of the country or world and you’ve never seen this… well… I think you should.
