New York City Ad Vandalism

Here's a New York City 7-11 advert that's been vandalized for a political message. Perhaps an anti-political message? Leave a comment and let me know what you guys think the vandals were trying to get across to the general public. Unfortunately I have to work most of the day, make sure you have a great Saturday folks!

Ads in a public school?

Ads in a public school? Schools in Minnesota are voting in November, whether to place ads on 10 percent of the available surfaces in all of the district's seven schools. That includes lockers, walls and floors. I found this on a  Minnesota newspaper, the Star Tribune. The full article can be found here. I'd like to hear what my followers think about it.

On Nov. 1, the school board is slated to decide whether it will allow the ads on up to 10 percent of the available surfaces in all of the district's seven schools. That includes lockers, walls and floors. The take for the district? $184,000 a year.
In a bleak economy, with dim prospects for any new state school funding, Centennial -- with $3.6 million in cuts this year and more likely on the way next year -- is just the latest school district looking at the ads as an alternative way to generate some cash. Paul Miller, president of Coon Rapids-based School Media's, the company that would install the ads, said he expects to have nine Twin Cities school districts signed up by the end of the year.
Nearby St. Francis schools already made that decision. Ads will start going up on lockers there this week, said district Superintendent Edward Saxton. The district's agreement with School Media's is similar to Centennial's proposed agreement. Its take: $190,000 to $200,000 a year.
