The hearts of the owners of secondhand stores and overpriced coffee shops that line 4th Street may be in the right place. One must ask, though, is this the right place to put the giant doughnut sign?

Ever since revolutionary Council began encouraging unruly bicycle drivers to drive bicycles along the street, it has become ever more dangerous for motor vehicle drivers to use the street. This is especially so since the California Democrat political ruling class imposed its 3 foot separation law for the purpose of giving bicycle drivers the advantage in the corrupt courts were an automobile driver to become involved in an accident with an unlicensed, untaxed, uninsured, and uncontrolled bicycle driver.

Let's face it. The purpose of the doughnut sign was to distract the attention of automobile drivers from the roadway to the sign. With Council encouraging unruly bicycle drivers to impede traffic along the street, shouldn't automobile drivers be using all their faculties watching out for dangerous bicycle drivers?

There are many other matters the secondhand store people could be addressing other than helping Council's war against decent shoppers who drive automobiles. Why don't they form a grass-roots committee to demand overcharging coffee shops begin paying their coffee servers a living wage, thereby reducing the wealth disparity?

Can't imagine that would be an attractive sight along 4th street.
Remember this may be an idea by the same people who thought that installing an old auto wreck in front of a parking lot on cherry and 4th would be an aesthetically pleasing choice, rather than it looking like an old abandoned auto wreck the city can't afford to cart away, to casual passersby.
