Monkey-wrenchers to the rescue

Document Actions

I was surprised and dismayed at the apparent power wielded by billboard companies (HCN, 1/23/12, "Billboards vs. Democracy"), but even more surprised and dismayed at the apparent lack of power that governments at all levels have to prevent their various affronts to our senses. Unlike junk mail, telemarketers, and political advertisements on TV, billboards are often much harder to ignore. Where are Doc and Bonnie when you need them?
