Washtenaw Ave-Showing Signs of NO LIFE

Okay, I'm out taking my kid to Toys R Us. On our way back, we encounter 3 x 5 foot poster boards of shreded babies. It wasn't just a few of these boards, but 20. They went at least for a mile down the road. Imagine the horror I now need to explain to my 3 year old. I was so enraged by this disgusting form of free speech (they are "angry"that the UM Hospital performs partial birth abortions), I had to struggle to control myself. I proceeded to flip off each sign holder, tried to engage them in explaining their reasoning for the offence. Not one of those sign holders could look me in the eye. Most of them were hiding behind the signs themselves. WTF! I drove straight to the police station to verify that this group had a permit to do this (yes, they do). The city council even approved off such trash. Off to the mayor, and city council I go. And guess what, I'm not the only person who has complained. I don't care if you are for or against abortion. Your choice is the foundation of this land. However, my 3 year old (or anyone for that matter) doesn't need to look at mutilated children for the sake of making a point. AAAHHHGGG.

People live to shock; but I think shock is just about over with as a way to motivate people. It just pisses them off as you are now!
