Quote of the Day - On my way here I passed a local cinema and it turned out you were expecting me after all, for the billboards read: "The Mummy Returns." - Margaret Thatcher

Who's Face Is On The Side Of That Milk Carton Billboard?

I keep up with the digital world perhaps a bit more than most of my contemporaries, but in my day, milk cartons were the preferred way of finding people who were lost.  They were mostly lost kids, but every once in a while, a creative milk company would broadcast some of the FBI's top ten wanted list.

Now, the "Most Wanted" are on digital billboards.

They work much better than milk cartons.  Last month, Oscar Finch was allegedly caught on tape robbing a bank.  Mobile, Alabama police uploaded his mug to 12 digital billboards across the city.

Viola' - a day later, Oscar turned himself into authorities. 

His fifteen minutes of fame were up.  Immediately after he turned himself in, the ads came down.
