For at least a year, this degrading billboard advertising “Power 106” Hip-Hop Radio has stood atop this equally nauseating mini-mall near Sepulveda and Victory.
Perhaps it’s a coincidence that it sits right over the beans and burrito El Pollo Loco.
This is the free market at its finest, where freedom of expression, for enormously wealthy outdoor advertisers like Clear Channel, takes precedence over the civic quality of life in Los Angeles.
We live in a sea of grossness, surrounded by the absolute lowest quality of commercialism and we are supposed to just turn a blind eye to it and move on.
But this is our city, where we live, raise children and hope that our urban surroundings might have just the slightest elevating effect.
The joke is on us.
