“Life’s short. Get a divorce” billboard yanked

A Chicago alderman complained that the racy billboard had been put up without a proper permit and a building inspector took it down, but not before it yielded a “dramatic” increase in calls to the law firm that placed it. (NBC San Diego, May 9; see May 8).


  • If I were the law firm I would look for other illegal billboards with less contraversal content and complain about them. The city will either have to remove them as well, or will face a lawsuit for content-sensitive enforcement.

    The permit process had better be about structural standards and maybe view obscuration and not about content…

    It is very important to make decisions carefully and not make spontaneous decisions just on silly advertising.

    I made this video about the Billboard…check it out !
