Let me say publicly that DonBoy’s answer exudes a combination of intuitive genius and confidence that make me think DonBoy is going to do big things in his life. -- Steven D. Levitt (Freakonomics blog)

As I was driving on the Mass Pike this afternoon, I saw a billboard from the marijuana legalization group changetheclimate.org. Here's the ad, as referenced on their site:
Below this billboard was the name of the company that owned the billboard itself: Clear Channel Communications. CC is said to own more billboards than any other company in America, and they've been accused of abusing that position before: see here for the setup (an attempt by an anti-war group to buy a billboard during that RNC last summer), and here for the resolution (ad visuals changed, revised ad was accepted.)
It's good to know that either they're not the source of right-wing evil that they sometimes seem to be, or they're just not paying attention to all of their own activities.
