Sign of the Times

If memory serves, when I first glimpsed this prime bit of Times Square ad real estate--directly across the street from Back Stage's old office, now across from my current office--back in the early '90s, it was the site of a giant smoking Joe Camel. I don't know much about this sort of thing, but for this space to sit fallow, as it has for weeks now, makes me kind of wonder and worry about our economy. Or perhaps this faded, uncovered Limbaugh billboard is an appropriately forlorn elegy for Republican ascendancy. A girl can dream, can't she?
