North Bay Billboard Modified

PETALUMA, CA - Late the night of May 16th, a small group of political poets altered the message of a controversial billboard on Hwy 101, just South of Petaluma. What once read ?God Bless America,? was temporarily altered to read ?God Forgive America.? The billboard is the site of many modifications, and as is the history with this site, the changes made are not expected to remain for more than a day or two. Since the erection of the billboard shortly after the events of September 11th 2001, numerous groups have changed the overt message, most often spray-painting the board to create a new, more honest message. More actions are expected in the months before the November elections.
