I listened to the debate over whether Indoor Comfort (formerly Cumberland Comfort and Kimbro Electric) should be allowed to build a huge electronic sign that looms over Interstate 40 near the airport and Briley Parkway. As a free speech advocate and a supporter of the advertising industry I was in favor of the idea.
But as I was driving home from the airport yesterday I saw this notice scrolling between “Spring A/C tuneup” special offers:
KENNEDY DRIVING SCHOOL
MUST BE ABLE TO SWIM
BRING YOUR OWN DRUGS
As much as I like to bash Kennedys and also support freedom of expression, that’s just stupid, tacky and juvenile. Personally, I won’t ever use that company again.
I’m getting crankier as I approach 40.
