A Fall in the Presence of God

The folks at the Meet Rack--by far one of the most interesting dive bars in Tucson, if not the world--removed the semi-famous sign that stood in front of the bar earlier today.

Meet Rack owner/former mayoral candidate Jim Anderson--aka God--was present for the removal, hugging the sign at one point before it was yanked down.

Meet Rack employee Leora Thompson said the city of Tucson was forcing the Meet Rack to take down the sign, which has been up, she said, since 1959.

Here are some photos of the sign, taken by Adam Kurtz, before it (the sign, not Adam) was yanked down.

Coming soon: A video report (!) from Jim Nintzel, showing the sign's demolition and featuring reaction from God.
