I find it interesting that NoC recently printed an article by Dave Cooper calling for additional restrictions on the type of sign-age a business can display on their own property (“No more feather flags!” June 2013), yet in your August issue you are advocating placing stickers “throughout town on lamp posts, telephone poles, magazine racks…” etc. that belong to someone else (editor intro to street feminism design contest winning entry “Real Dads show their kids how to oppose rape culture,” August 2013). Defacing someone else’s property is blatantly illegal as well as highly unethical.

We’ll grant you the magazine racks, but the lamp posts and telephone poles are ours, damnit!

Hilarious. Keep up the good work
Seriously, where do these people get the idea that their “help” is wanted?

I ain’t smoking nothing; I’m just high on the Grand Master P!
Old man’s daughter speaks
Thanks for the wonderful story on my old man (“Old man gets older,” August 2013). He has been the source of much wisdom.
