For several months now, there’s been a very irritating poster near the door at work. It was created by the Peoria Area Chamber of Commerce to promote pedestrian safety. Every day it takes all my restraint not to provide a scathing commentary on it with a magic marker. It reads:
There are many ways to be a hero… Yield to pedestrians.
So, if you want to be a hero, you can run into a burning building, donate a kidney, or pass up an opportunity to mow down a jaywalker. Hmm… I guess that makes me a hero 4 out of 5 days last week.
