Leah Garchik’s column from today was a treasure trove of information! First, we marveled at DA Harris’ book release party (to which we were not invited!), and, now, what’s this?

ABC plans to promote its sci-fi miniseries “V” by sending skywriters to write “V” in red around famous landmarks, including the Golden Gate Bridge. In response to a constituent concerned about the environmental and visual impact of this, Supervisor Bevan Dufty has fired off letters to the city, the bridge authority and the FAA.

Supe Dufty’s seemingly on a one-man push to support the flagging USPS — between his letter to Whole Foods head John Mackey and these three missives, he’s already beat this correspondent’s Wedding Thank You Note Extravaganza Of 2006.

What say you? Does V mark the spot of environmental doom, or do you welcome our skywriting lizard overlords?

    oh let’s have a freakout. there’s sky writing or those sky billboards all the time. At least they aren’t being like those obnoxious film companies that spraypaint stencils all around town for lame movies no one likes.

    besides, don’t piss off the Visitors…
