You're cited!



NEW YORK — A giant "You're Fired" sign on the Trump Tower in midtown Manhattan has earned Donald Trump's development firm four summonses from the city.

The firm does not have a permit and was asked on four occasions to remove the 13-foot tall, 25-foot wide banner that promotes the hit reality television show "The Apprentice," the New York Post first reported Friday.

I'm sure the free advertising of this story is worth more than 500 city sign fines to the Donald, Inc.

Of course, given that (according to the New York Times) his casino empire is crumbling, maybe the fines will start adding up :). His company is renogitiating his debts, asking for more time, etc. The trump Casinos are considered "dowdy" now.

Maybe the stockholders should tell the Donald "You're Fired."
