News of this happening to someone in the world seems to pop up at least once every few years. The last time I recall was this, as Bill Maher reported:
“An elderly woman in Pheonix was reaching for her cataract medicine and, yes, she Super glued her eye shut. And after seeing what happened, her husband of many years, took the Super Glue and moved it next to the toothpaste.”
This particular incident is only slightly political because the guy who did it happens to have bought his way in to a royal family, sorta. But it brings up all sorts of person memories for me, like when my friend mistook aerosol glue for aerosol deodorant and when I mistook aquarium glue for lotion in the dark.
“…criminalizing marijuana, criminalizing the possesion of a few ounces of pot, and that kind of thing, I mean it’s just, it’s costing us a fortune and it’s ruining young people. You people go in to prisons, they go in as youths, and they come out as hardened criminals, and that’s not a good thing.” -Pat Robertson
While the above quote had to be salvaged from repeated words and verbalized pauses, I was shocked, SHOCKED, to hear Evangelist Pat Robertson speaking reasonably about drug policy… or anything, for that matter.
JSLAB sent me a message requesting/demanding that I do something about Arizona Governor Jan Brewer’s recent gaffe. A few hours later, I finished this campaign commercial, highlighting Brewer’s pause and warnings about beheadings in Arizona.
Until yesterday, I lived in Arizona, and I can personally say that I have not been beheaded once. Still, just to be safe, I’ll be going to Vegas tomorrow to meet up with my brother, and we’ll be driving to Michigan.
Isn’t it about time that I, Kevin R. Breen of FAILocracy did something, I don’t know, HEROIC? Yes. It is time.

You can see more details about this in my write-up at When Falls the Coliseum.
I designed this advertisement by request for an organization that was opposing an expansion of the public transit system in Grand Rapids Michigan (after discovering that it would be cheaper and more fuel-efficient to just give all the riders free cab rides).
The creators of the campaign wanted to put the ad on a billboard, but the billboard company rejected the ad as disparaging. But, when they submitted the ad to appear on the bus itself, free speech and fairness regulations forced them to accept it.
