As we hunker down in Brooklyn in preparation for the arrival of Hurricane Irene, emergency teams are gearing up, preparing for the worst.  LOOK OUT! The wind is so strong tonight that it blew the uppercase right off the L in AMBUlETTE.

I'm so not handy, I had to look up what an ANGlE GRINDER is.  Apparently it is a tool that is used to grind off the angles of uppercase letters, like an L, to make it into a lowercase L, which has no sharp angles, and looks remarkably like an uppercase i.  Either that or this toolbox belongs to Angie Grinder, and she left it behind on the sidewalk here in Park Slope..

Walking on BROKEN GlASS

Friend and journalist Paul Berger cracked a new case ... as in a box of BROKEN GlASS.

He also just wrote this article about Leon and Brian Dewan of Dewanatron and their new musical invention, the Hymnotron.

Everything in its write PlATES

I agree with Laura B, this PlATES notification found at the Fountain of Juice in Macon, GA is confusing. It could be in reference to Pilates, or a pirate, minus the AARRRRGH.  And now it's impossible to make any corrections to the message, because, in a moment of overconfidence, it has been laminated.  PlATES ARE NOT trash, but this sign is.

On the lowercase L beat in Hartland, MI, George Fox discovered "some sort of vegetable stand. They made a valiant effort in trying to fit in SYSTEM". I'm betting this poor farmer went out of business, because, PlEASE, there is no honor, only shame, in using a lowercase L in that way.

And They Were All YEllOW

stephanni sewell, who spells her name entirely in lowercase letters because she lOVES lower case (and not just the L's!), discovered these 40 NEW YEllOW BOX FLIP FLOPS in, appropriately, the YEllOW ROSE state.  The author of this sign apparently flip flops on the use of proper case with L's, as is evident with the perfect alignment of the first lowercase L in YEllOW above the uppercase i in FLIP.  It hurts my i's to look at it.
