Clear Channel is also the media giant that won't allow John Lennons "Imagine" to be played on any or their stations, all 1200+ !

How do people get up to those things? (doesn't carrying a ladder up to it look suspicious?) And is that just paper which is taped up there?

just wondering.

How to 'get up to those things' 25.Mar.2003 23:17

To '?': One way to 'get up to those things' is to bring them closer to the ground. Chainsaws work great for this. There are other methods.... However, maybe you didn't notice the ladder leading up to this sign. I'd start there.

Reader, I think that paper is taped or glued to the billboard. It ain't Photoshop.

Thanks Elena. The billboard is in Portland on SE Hawthorne at about 46th. It's on the north side of the street facing west. You may copy this picture to send to your brother, or just point him to this page.

use their tactics against them! the three seconds it takes to glance up while driving, walking, riding, running...is just enough time to influence anyone. Why do you think advertisement is such a huge business!?!Use the money the corperate world pays, to front a space of your own! Help correct street signs, billboards..anything! just like this one... all over Portland !!! Let your political creativity take a stand!
