Thus, this begs the question as to why WSM 95 was singled out and made an exception in the press for its bombardment of signs on street corners (June 11, p. 3)? The fault does not lie within WSM 95's strong marketing tactics; instead, the fault lies within the office of the mayor, the Metro Council, and especially the Metro Codes Department for not enforcing our laws.
