Forgive my biting of Megan's meme, but this SPD billboard has been beguiling me for weeks.

Eventually my eye gets to the small text announcing "Now Hiring," but before that the big text—"It's your city. Keep it safe"—makes me sure it's an ad for self-preservation and vigilante justice. "Seattle's police department is notoriously awful," it seems to say. "When it comes to public safety, you're on your own."

In other news, the SPD is hiring, and thanks to the passage of I-502, maybe they'll even hire the occasional pot smoker. Good luck!
