Cartoons And National Security

Say this for Turner Broadcasting Systems – and an advertising agency – they eventually did the right thing in that bizarre Boston security scare. To the tune of $1 million, they reimbursed the agencies that dealt with those electronic devices that caused the closing of bridges and highways. They also donated another $1 million toward homeland security and related programs. The charges against the two men who placed the devices have been resolved.

Not yet resolved: Why in a post-9/11 world would somebody not think twice about a publicity campaign for some adult cartoon show that involved putting blinking electronic devices with wires and circuit boards in places such as highway support beams and a rail line? Or maybe they bottom-lined it: They got their $2 million worth.

Also say this: Didn’t you feel like cuffing around those two punks who abused their 15 minutes of fame?
