Radio Hosts Transform Billboard Hate Crime Into Art

Earlier this month, we told you about a second act of vandalism targeted at a mid-city billboard advertising Internet radio show The Craig & Robbie Hour. This weekend, we can happily report that a unique fix devised by Craig Olsen now covers over the previous paint splatter defacement.
