Air Pollution

Perhaps you felt the latest slap in the face? Much of the past week, a plane has flown over Albuquerque towing an air-borne billboard. Imagine: burning precious fossil fuel while generating noise just to get you to look up and — if you are shockingly impressionable — to run into a local business, even though that business wants to irritate you for their own profit. Let’s go! You’d better hope this ideal is deeply unprofitable, because if somebody goes into that noxious place and says, “gee, I saw your sign and came right in,” we can expect more and more and more of this obnoxious advertising. Oh, well, it does distract us from all those damn helicopters. mjh

  1. Don’t anybody tell the pilot that when the banner is one-sided, as this one is, it’s flown facing down, not vertically, as

    two-sided banners are. What a newb. mjh

  2. I’d participate in a boycott of Furr’s but nobody I know has ever

    eaten there, that I’ve heard of.

    Huh, now they got me curious … just how lame IS their salad bar?
