While we are on the topic of signs, I thought a previous Secretary of Transportation had made a commitment that the MBTA (Boston's transit system) would turn down advertisements that sold alcoholic beverages. Instead, the T seems to be targeting those ads to the poorer sections of town and near colleges and universities.
At least one state representative recognizes the public health implications of this practice and has filed a bill to ban it. But, shouldn't the Governor take this issue on without legislation? It would be a good time to just say no.
