I need a bumper sticker for an experiment. Specifically, I need a bumper sticker that says, "Barack Obama is not a socialist. I am." Then I'll put it on my car, park it on a street that's public but not in plain view of everything, and see how long it goes before being vandalized.
You typically think of graffiti/vandalism as an urban thing... I've actually seen some in Wyoming, just, like I said, not in places people walk every day. Out of town a few miles on the dirt roads where I go running, people leave their mark.
Also, they shoot holes in road signs. It's funny -- if I saw holes shot out of a speed limit sign in Chicago I'd get the hell out of wherever I was (is that true? I don't remember ever seeing that in Chicago but I can't be sure...), but it doesn't register the same way here (it also might not register, say, out by the Indiana border, around Lake Calumet, near the Ford plant, in Hegewisch? Because that whole area is basically central Illinois with Chicago addresses. Speaking of which, and I've mentioned this before, Monee is on the address grid). I guess Wyomingites with guns point them mostly at animals. Animals that aren't human. It's a small distinction that makes every bit of difference when you are, in fact, a human.
Which is an odd coincidence, to be sure...
