Bush sign swiped in Venice

SignA 20-foot-long sign criticizing President Bush was purloined from a building facade on Abbot Kinney Sunday night. Venice Paper reports that "to steal the sign, thieves broke into [a] private construction site then climbed up to a second story scaffolding." The developer had enthusiastically posted the sign after it was paid for by donations from about twenty Venice locals, says the paper.
