Coit Tower/SF

Yesterday I put this sign up by Coit Tower around 8 a.m. It was about 15 feet long, highly visible and still up at 3 p.m.. Here's how it looked from the waterfront:

You get to this fence by driving up to Coit Tower, parking, and walking less than a hundred feet in almost total seclusion. The section of fencing most visible is about thirty feet long and overlooks a fairly decent chunk of the waterfront just south of Fisherman's Wharf. Highly Recommended for large texts. (Here's how it looked in my apartment: )

After I hung it I went for a drive and was pleasantly surprised to see these signs still up from the day before:

101 Northbound

101 Southbound

101 Southbound

This meant that damn near everyone driving on the 101 through San Francisco got to see, along with all the corporate billboards, garbage and graffiti, at least one instance of an individual invoking their right to free political speech.

So, for that matter, did a large number of people looking up at Coit Tower.

Cardboard and Paint, People... That's all it takes. Cardboard, paint and a little bit of cleverness and you can talk to a quarter million people a day. Easy.
