My office window lets me gaze upon such marvels as the Big Lots store across the street and the traffic jams on I-10. The view has never been particularly beautiful, and now it’s getting less so. Someone’s putting up a massive billboard next to the interstate.
I think I read about this in the paper last week. I recall a story about a zoning exception being granted for a billboard that didn’t conform to regulations regarding height or proximity or something. I think it was this monster, but I’m not for sure.
My boss said he thought billboards were a thing of the past.
I wonder what edifying message will be placed upon this framework? Perhaps it will be an advertisement for daquiris, or a casino, or a car dealership. The possibilities are limitless.
