Billboards Revised in Seattle, WA

Several commercial billboards in Seattle were corrected, to provide more accurate information to the public.

The Seattle PI reports that several Seattle-area billboards were altered, the result being a commentary, rather than the corporate-design. The PI refers to it as 'vandalism' or 'defacement'.

Well, it seems as if the peoples' voice has been heard. The revision now provides what some seem to call accurate information. Interesting that nutrition and taste in food seem to be motivators. Now people know that capitalism equals Starbucks which then equals a bad taste in your mouth. Effective, probably not. But what is anyway? An attempt at alternative communication, no disagreement there.
