The picture is worth saving, Somebody please save it to the appropriate gallery.
So what do you think - is it about size (zoning violation) or the content (being against the city) ?St. Louis officials say the mural is too big. Its author says they're against the message, not the medium.
Local codes restrict signs in the city's residential areas to 30 square feet in total size, said Matthew Moak, an associate city attorney. The mural is 24 feet across -- 15 times the maximum.
I believe it is abit of both.
Or is it protected by the 1st Amendment ? I believe yes.
When is a mural not a sign ? Not sure.
I wonder if this court case will national attention - CNN or Planning Magazine ?
