'Your papers, please' must never be heard in America

On a January night, under cover of darkness, Matt Tomasulo and two friends dared to commit a subversive act: They placed 27 signs at three intersections in Raleigh, advising people how long it takes to walk from one destination to another.
The project is "just offering the idea that it's OK to walk," said Mr. Tomasulo, 30. "It's not telling you to walk. It's just offering the idea that it's OK, and it is a choice. I think that's the biggest issue - people just don't even think about walking as a choice right now. Even if you can't walk to get your groceries, I think you can still choose to walk each day."
"He stopped and read it and realized it wasn't advertising and just kept walking," Mr. Tomasulo said Wednesday.
