CTA anti-harassment campaign in full swing

It's great to see the CTA ad campaign (below) against female harassment. I have long railed against jerks who harass or rudely touch women on trains and buses. And both my wife and college student daughter have been victims. In fact, most woman I know say they have been victimized.

Kudos to the young women who kept the issue at the forefront and testified before a CTA board meeting about it. And to the CTA for acting on it.

Senate candidate moonlighting in ad campaign? Is it just me, or does the guy in the U.S. Cellular ad wrapping train cars look a lot like the guy running for Illinois U.S. Senate, David Hoffman? You be the judge.

  • Hoffman apparently needs the money. :-) I received an e-mail from him for a contribution a couple of days after he announced; I assume he got that e-mail address off a bar association job posting site.

    Of course, if it really were Hoffman, he would have the same problem Oberweis had with the Oberweis Ice Cream commercials. I see that another Oberweis has taken over that job.

    Fortunately, now with respect to all politicians, my and every e-mail program has a recycling bin, trash can, or empty Deleted Items button.

  • if someone's harassing you on the CTA, and you say something to the operator, what can he or she do about it?
    they're not all specifically harassment, but this site is full of stories of people who have tried to get passengers removed from the CTA only to hear from the driver that they can't do anything about it.

  • I don't think it's him. He looks pretty different than the photo on the website.

  • JW: I know it's note Hoffman. I was really just noting the similarity.

  • I think the US Cellular guy looks like Patrick Dempsey (aka McDreamy!)

    And while I do appreciate the harassment ad campaign, I hate hate HATE that god-awful font they chose. Droopy t's.
