Anti-WM Billboard on WM Land!

Rather amusing short article about a local community association renting a billboard for an anti-WM message on land owned by WM.

A billboard erected by Wal-Mart opponents at the proposed store site in this Tacoma suburb has been torn down at the demand of the Bentonville, Ark., retailer.

The 5-by-11-foot sign proclaiming "Don't Wal-Mart Bridgeport. Not here!" on Bridgeport Way West was up for three days last week....

The billboard owner, Clear Channel Outdoor, a division of the entertainment corporation Clear Channel, took down the sign because it violated company policies because Wal-Mart owns the land, spokesman Chris Artman said.
