Most of you have probably heard of the controversy stirred up by Sentinel High School and its desire to put up whatever in the hell it wants.

Binky Griptight, an occasional 4&20 commenter, has gotten himself a blog – and has a spot-on analysis of the sign issue and the students take on it. Must read.

Speaking, though, of good neighbors – who is that sign company that is selling the sign to that school? Because you have crack pushers and you have crack addicts – and they’re both playing a roll in this fiasco. Shame on that not-so-good-corporate citizen, whoever they are.

Further – I know that off-premise signs are regulated (prohibited, actually) by our current ordinance. If Sentinel is going to subsidize its sign by advertising for other businesses, it seems to me that those businesses, then, would be in violation. I mean – who is in violation with that off-premise advertising – the enabler (the sign) or the enabled (the advertiser)?

I didn’t see this in any Montana media outlets and just stumbled across it in Google news. Then I noticed jhwygirl had the story in her “Various and Sundry,” so I guess it’s old news.

Still, I’m toying with the idea of not paying any of my bills this month, and I’ve got a lot of them. If we’re facing Armageddon, though, my accounts payable can wait.

Here’s the story, as reported by the Honolulu Star-Bulletin (they’re into volcanoes over there).

You’d think this would be front page/lead story news around our state, especially in the Bozeman area, which sits about ninety miles due north of the caldera.
