Because when you put a sign up next to a freeway, people will read it until somebody takes it down.

Thanksgiving Day Postings
I got up before dawn to get this sign up while it was still reasonably dark. It's over twelve feet long and held up with six wire coat hangers, duct tape and some bungee cords. Traffic here (14 lanes by LAX) is usually at a standstill, which is good because, well... it is a lot of reading.
The other side is much more succinct:
I spent the rest of the morning hitting my usual spots around LA and the Valley and then wended my way up to Ventura for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner with family.
Driving back I saw that pretty much every one of these signs, including the huge one by LAX, were still in place, hopefully inspiring some conversations in cars and around some tables.
I just bought a hundred of these posters of the Arctic Ocean from space. They measure a little over four feet by four feet and are made from heavy, weatherproof vinyl. While clearly the earth from a distance, it's not entirely obvious that it's a view of the Arctic, so any ideas for appropriately descriptive texts would be greatly appreciated.
Signs placed on the 405, 10, 101 and 110 Thanksgiving Day in Inglewood, Hollywood, Downtown Los Angeles, Encino, Thousand Oaks, Oxnard and Ventura.
