NYC Sticker Shock

This sticker was glued to my driver's-side backseat window.

One of my favorite things about New York is that the traffic cops don’t just ticket you, they humiliate you.

The point of this neon-yellow sticker, I suppose, is that pedestrians and fellow drivers will see it, read it, and subsequently hate me. What’s worse is that these stickers can’t be removed - last time I got one on my car, it came off only after a violent rainstorm.

    “A few weeks ago, the band Quetzal was asked to play at Fiesta Shalom, an event aimed at building relations between the Jewish and Chicano community. The band, which has long worked in community building exercises and projects, saw the invitation as a great opportunity – but when it came time to sign the contract, they realized the event was sponsored by the Israeli Consulate.” Click here to listen.
