Elevated Roadways/Skyways

For reasons that should be obvious, signs placed in sight of elevated roadways tend to stay up longer than most. This fence, near Thurgood Marshall High School in SF, is a favorite. Although physically no more than fifty feet from traffic, it takes miles and miles of driving, (and if you don't know precisely how to get there, a hell of a lot of hunting around) to actually reach. As this is one of the more sparsely-travelled sections of the 280, signs placed here aren't seen by too many more than seventy-five to a hundred thousand people per day. Still though, it adds up. The sign above has been up for three days now.

Having witnessed the overwhelming presence of flags and patriotic signs on overpasses up and down the Eats Coast, I'm inspired to see this and other freewayblogger-related websites. I intend to promote this movement as much as possible.

There's nothing intrinsicly wrong with displaying flags, Steve. Especially the American flag -- though granted, it seems to have been co-opted by some very unAmerican people.

Anyway, be sure to check out The Xerox Blogger for more anti-Bushco inspirations.

BTW: Love the newest picture, FWB. Great perspective. Makes one feel like we're right there doing our Free Speech duty. I hope you'll one day post some video of your freeway blogging. Your narration would be priceless, no doubt.

Why do you think unamerican people are putting up American flags? Our troops are fighting for this flag, and the right to hang signs calling Bush a liar. Even though the majority of them voted for Bush. More than 80% of our troops support the President.

I guess according to STEVE the east coast is more American than the west coast. You even when Clinton was in office I still flew the flag, What's wrong with you people out west?

We're not fascists. You are.

Why would you say that when I said I fly the American flag. I served 2 years in our (U.S.) military, sorry I didn't get any purple hearts. I am not a fascists. I love you Dems. Its great to be able to talk to people and express our different views.
