Memo from Martin P Burns of PricewaterhouseCoopers

-------------------- Start of message text --------------------

Um they already *are* letting companies sponsor roads per mile - perfect
(with plenty of time to see it in traffic) on the Van Wyck highway into
Manhattan from

At least pavement stencils would be less obtrusive than the bigass signs
they have
which look like they are useful information.

Uh-oh!  How long before cities come up with the idea to sell ad space on
sidewalks, streets, building faces, etc. to raise money instead of taxes?
For St. Patty's Day, paint clovers on all the sidewalks interspersed with
Budwieser frogs; for the 4th of July, stars & stripes with Budweiser logos;
for Mothers Day, Hallmark crowns between flowers; for Valentines Day,
with Godiva Chocolate ads; the possibilities are endless! Charge per mile,
per slab, per block...  Scary ain't it!
