Sad Prude

Food for Thought Books in Amherst has had a constant problem recently with someone who keeps coming by when they are closed and covering up with tape the posters in their window showing two guys kissing.

Finally they put up the following message under the poster:

To the sad prude that keeps putting duct tape over the images of love and affection on this sign:

Every time you do this you just make us decide to keep them up longer. If you keep it up, we'll be sure to get 100 of them and display them in every inch of window space we have. That's a promise.

Hugs and kisses,

Food for Thought Collective

The details of the 2010 census were released yesterday for Massachusetts and the Boston Globe put up charts and graphs explaining it all. The problem is their maps were of a state I don't quite recognize. Notice that the display is called, "Every person counted." Oh really?

This creature was part of a student movie being filmed at the UMass library.

Yesterday a jazz band was playing in the lobby of the UMass Student Union.

Hey Tom, the "cover up" reminds me of a case I investigated where this guy got his wife this beautiful nude nymph with wings, (nymphs, always have wings?), anyway, some a-hole kept putting signs on the thing to cover it up, sort of a fig leaf if you will. The whack job finally got so bad that she/he/it, made a sort of gay 90's outfit for the nymph, complete with bonnet. I had it in the cruiser for a while. Dude, I could write a book. Anyway, the guy and his wife had to put a cage of sorts around the nymph. Hey Tom. I ain't making this up.
