Making it easier to spot the idiots
If you know the name Tom Leykis, you know the name of a sexist asshole. Leykis, the radio host who is disturbingly popular with young men, often has idiotic recurring bits on his show and one of the most awful ones is "Flash Friday" where men are encouraged to drive during the daytime (on a given Friday, of course) and/or have a sign on their vehicle that says "Flash Friday" or "Leykis 101." Female listeners/fans of the show are then encouraged by Mr. Leykis to flash whoever displays their Leykis fan membership. Today while driving on I5 South to work, I saw this guy in his truck with the sign prominently displayed in the rear. Sorry for the crappy cell-phone camera quality, but I can assure you that it does indeed say "Flash Friday." - Luke
Perv with a camera cell-phone
So I Was Sitting In An Excercise Sport Science Class At OSU And Was Just Sitting There When This Kid Next To Me Decided To Pull Out His Cell Phone And Take A Picture Of This Girls Butt And Underwear That Was Exposed Because She Was Bending Over. I Can't Believe This Would Happen Right In Front Of Me And No One Said Anything While He Was Showing His Friend Next To Him What He JustDid....HORRIBLE!! - Via email

At the time of the column's writing, Hollaback Pacific Northwest was not officially launched. And as an FYI, Hollaback Seattle is only staying online to redirect to HBPNW.
Hollaback Pacific Northwest is now up and running!
