Eyes on the Street: Give Me 3 Starts to Go Down

Easy come.
...easy go.
...easy go.

We knew it wouldn’t last forever, but making it to Thanksgiving would have been nice.

While traveling around the city last week, I noticed that some of the “Give Me 3” P.S.A. posters that had been placed at bus stops around the city and county were already removed.  Last Monday, I noticed one on Martel adjacent to Park LaBrea was gone.  Later in the week, while taking Sammy for a walk, I noticed that both of the ones at Pico and Barrington were also replaced.

That being said, most of the ones that I’ve spotted are still up, but apparently the minimum shelf life for these P.S.A.’s is two months.  As you move throughout the town, take a second to see if your Give Me 3 has survived into its third month.

On an unrelated note, does anyone else find it weird that the same green Volkswagon bug is in both pictures at Pico and Barrington??
