This marks the second time a drunk driver has crashed into a commemorative fence outside Joe Shuster's home.
It's deja vu all over again! The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that a drunk driver struck a commemorative fence erected outside of Joe Shuster's childhood home in Glenville, damaging seven panels depicting stories from Action Comics #1 and Superman's connection to the Cleveland area. This marks the second time since the fence was erected five years ago that the fence has been damaged by a drunk driver.
"This is why we can't have nice things," opined Christian Hoffer, editor in chief for the Outhouse and former resident of Northeast Ohio. "First LeBron, now this. No wonder our sport teams suck." Hoffer then proceeded to put on a Cleveland Browns hair shirt and proceeded to weep in the corner.
The fence was designed and constructed by the Glenville Development Corp. and the Siegel and Shuster Society in 2009 and was paid for by a grant. In 2011, a different part of the fence was struck by a different drunk driver, which caused about $2,600 worth of damage.
