Funkytown

In the Mexico City neighborhood of Iztacalco, someone has been posting these fake "Tolerance Zone" signs, which employ the internationally recognized symbols for "tranny hooker cruising" and "snitch silencing." Whether the intention is to encourage or to protest these activities not exactly clear, but the article features the requiste humorless Mexican bureaucrat insisting, well, no, these activities are not, in fact, tolerated in Iztacalco. So think twice before popping a stoolie in the dome - and don't believe everything you read.

Are you sure these are not the NY and NJ postings at the entry of the Lincoln Tunnel?

228 hits today alone! I'm not sure the Mexican phone system can handle it.

Just 17,999,772 to go to get back to those 60 Minutes levels...

Get the cat on Cute Overload. That should push it over the edge.
