We've already seen this one way back in part 3 of this series and it's happening again. I guess the decay from how long this space previously sat empty rotted it enough that new messages just won't take. The rusted facade weeps through the public service message like a wound through a white t-shirt. But this gash is in our sky.
I sent an email our mayor and city council this morning. Please do the same and encourage them to prevent digital billboards from landing in Tacoma and demand that non-conforming static billboards be removed from our neighborhoods.

|I was prepared to stop and take a picture of the super tagged board on 6th and Cushman, but it had been replaced with a fresh ad. Same one, just non-tagged. I've noticed this particular Ad Council ad on most of the signs that have been pointed out in this series, K^F. I wonder if it's their defacto slap it up ad.|

|I think they have a few of those on right now. My estimate of pub. service messages vs. real, paying, commercial ads on the routes I normally take around town is probably 2/3rds pub. service messages. Lets relieve Clear Channel of this "burden" and require them take down their non-conforming billboards. Oh, but let's not let them replace those useless static billboards with digital ones. 'Cause those suck [energy, views, our eyes off the road, etc].|

|I would love for Tacoma to plan more than three years ahead and realize that there are real energy use issues. Why would we let one mega corporation to build energy sucking contraptions we then need to supply with power way into the future? Hoe will be paying for taking them down when they become obsolete? Why is Tacoma moving backwards??|

Although I have another home on the web I thought it might be nice to lead by example a bit and put this blog system up to the test myself.
So far, so good... Funny how I build web tools for other people that are far better than the one's I have setup over on KFnet.
Hey Clear Channel, Clean Up Your Crap!
