The Anti-Sit Archives

Just after our second-term Republican governor took office, one of his first decisions was to cut funds to social service agencies, including homeless shelters. At the same time, I started noticing metal pyramids being erected under highway overpasses to make it uncomfortable for homeless people trying to find a dry place for a rest.

This gallery of "anti-sit" devices
-- the spokes, posts, and pokey things meant to annoy or injure the seating-minded -- chronicles the endless "ways in which bottoms can be kept away without calling too much attention to the intimidation."

Holy cow! I have never seen these. What a ridiculous notion, solving the homeless issue with spikes!
