It's hard to see, even though I darkened the photo a bit... On the righthand side of the poster, found in a Brooklyn subway station, next to Indiana Jones, someone wrote with a silver marker: Running from da cops. I don't know why, but I found this hilarious.
I was thinking about Ben's post about crime being related to warm weather, and while it seems like a possible argument, there are also so many other factors that go into the equation. All I know is that the warm weather definitely makes my neighborhood much noisier, especially on weekend nights. Everyone goes outside, and the sound travels upward and into my windows. My sister and I decided that we're going to join in the noisiness and sit on our stoops one day, just like everyone else does here. We're going to just sit there and do nothing but talk loudly, like everyone else does in Harlem. And we're going to stare at people that walk by and make comments on how sexy they are. We might get out a little boombox and play R&B hits, too.
But it seems like there would be a lot of crime in cold places too, because don't people go crazy being cooped up inside for long periods of time?
