JunkThieves: The Case Continues


In the wake of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, teenage boys were forced to wear signs admitting to their crimes, as noted in this historical account.

This week, a judge in Attalla City, Alabama, decided that what worked for early 20th Century Barbary Coast was good enough for Wal-Mart, according to this London Mail account.

So that's where this term Junk Thief comes from? Interesting. I like it.

Do I have to wear a sign that punishes me for my sexual proclivities?

Only if you move to a Red State. I still have a sweater with a big lavendar Q on it i can loan you in case you end up in Tuscaloosa or Omaha by some weird chance.

You got me thinking because of this- and I thought of the scarlet letter, etc. before reading these comments. Check it out on today's blog....
