Friday night topic: Can the ban?


— 7:08 PM on June 18, 2004

As a resident of Missouri, I couldn't have been happier when I learned about the ban on trashy billboards becoming law. The drive from Kansas City to St. Louis was nothing but a barrage of ads for, erm, adult businesses, and downtown KC isn't much different. Out of state visitors must think that's all we do here, and ours kids must think the same about us adults. So the ban came as good news.

But then I realized some of you guys probably have religious attachments to the First Amendment, broadly interpreted to include nekkid ladies but not political speech like campaign ads, and I thought, hey, FNT.

So I ask you: should communities have the right to ban trashy billboards? Discuss.
