Paper changes its play of a F—ing street sign hack. Print v. online: Standards are still different.

When The Brooklyn Paper’s print edition hits the street tomorrow (PDF online now), however, the photo, on page 1, will appear in an altered state (right). “Whew! We’ve censored it,” The Paper’s caption says.
