shoot u down (like i'm chris burden)

Hello. I know what's got Dick Manitoba's goat: unwed mothers. But ya know what's got mine? THIS has got mine.

Every weekend lately,this dumb-ass company has been advertising up&down our beach from 11:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. The plane is extra noisy, with a buzzing sound. And why is that? According to a brochure promoting banner planes, the "extra" noise is a GOOD thing because "when people hear a loud plane, they automatically look up, and then we have their attention." OK, you've got our attention. There's a minor problem though: The letters that spell out the company's name are 2small 2 b red without the use of binoculars.

Various towns around the U.S. have complained about the noise but airspace is controlled by the FAA, not city governments, and the FAA tends to favor the banner planes. There IS one place u can go to escape the noise: George Bush's ranch in Texas;banner planes r not allowed to fly over his property. I guess the noise maybe bothers him when he's "thinking".

No tour or shows or anything...2busy watching the marin headlands turn pink.
And how YOU doin'?
