Rant on bus drivers as public servants

Gladys shares another tale via the Comments section that I want to make sure you all see

"Been meaning to post this one for a while: has anyone else seen the real-estate sign on the west side of Western Avenue, a little south of Irving Park, on which someone chalked the following:

"BUS DRIVERS ARE PUBLIC SERVANTS, NOT CAPTAINS OF THEIR OWN SHIP"

"I'm thinking a bus either threw someone off or blew by someone...makes me giggle every time I pass. (That, and the guy just north of Lawrence who sits on the hydrant with pigeons perching on his lap, shoulders and arms...)"

Thanks for the contribution, Gladys. BTW, there's a picture of the pigeon guy in last week's Chicago Reader.

Man, I lived half a block away from the corner of Western and Lawrence for a year and a half, and I call tell you that after awhile, Pigeon Man's novelty value wears off in a big way....
