Reason # 52 Petworth is badass

Darfur, originally uploaded by Prince of Petworth.

We have a social conscious.

It's a good thing we don't get points taken off for lazy grammar and poor spellin' on the internets. The worst that can happen is everyone thinkin' you're a illiterate lunatic that likes to set off fireworks and complain about shoddy carpentry.

I knew it! That kept me up half the night. Damn. Hey, can Christina or oden email me directly at I have a quick question for you two. Thanks.

I don't know that sticking a sign in your yard classifies as being socially conscience. I see signs like this all over and they are no more thoughtful than the support our troops stickers I see.
Do they sell those? and does the money go to help the cause? Have you ever stopped someone in their yard that had one of those signs and asked them what actually is happening in Darfur?
Does anybody agree with what I am getting at? I feel like things like this are just a sign of vanity. People think it's cool or hip to seem concerned and aware but how many actually are? and what do they do with it? a sign? I don't know.
I hope I am wrong but I fear that I am not.

Anonymous: I think of it more as a sliding scale, on one end you have doctors (like Doctors W/O Borders) and aid workers who put themselves directly in harms way in places like Dafur, and on the other end of the scale you have wrestling fans who sport "You Can Pry My Gun Outta My Cold Dead Fingers" duct-taped to the pit bull pen outside their trailer. Putting a "Save Dafur" sign in your yard is somewhere in the vast middle. I'll let you decided on the efficacy and value of such an act. Personally I'd prolly choose a more generalized a moderate tone with my yard sign... perhaps "Be Sweet" or "Don't Pee Here".

"I don't know that sticking a sign in your yard classifies as being socially conscience."

"Conscious." Petworth has a social conscience," (noun) or "Petworth is socially conscious." (adjective)

I know I'm just being a bitch now so I'll shut up. Hey PoPpa, I didn't know you were looking for me. Sorry for the delay.
