Geez. What sense does it make to uglify your own neighborhood because you are mad at how slow the wheels at city hall turn?
A message spray painted on a fence on the Northwest Side is getting plenty of attention. The question is -- will it help?
People living near Old Tezel and New Gilbeau are fed up. They feel like something's missing in their neighborhood. So, at least one of them decided to try something a little different to get their message out.
The 'tagged' message is pretty clear, "Old Tezel Road Needs A Sidewalk."
"I think that we've seen a lot of accidents taking place because there is no curb there," explained concerned resident Judith de Santiago. "We see cars swerving into the fences as you're driving."
No sidewalk? Well, put up grafitti on your own fence.
No trash pick-up? Hmm, maybe we can burn a few tires.
Need a streetlight? How about breaking a few windows.
Oh, well. At least it's not my neighborhood.
UPDATE: And, at least they're not in the U.N.
