"So long and thanks for all the blood"
Around Pittsburgh, awful billboards like the one at the right are popping up. I'm not against blood donation, or saving little girls, but the message "Thank you for my blood" is pretty repulsive. Whatever happened to "Give the gift of life"? I guess I shouldn't be surprised, seeing as this is the town where the health care advertisements say "Choose a hospital as if your life depended on it." Here's one of the commercials that ran on tv for a while. (Copyright on that belongs to GBL by the way.)
