Donald T. Sterling Ads: Homeless?
Last Sunday, the Los Angeles Times published its final-ever Real Estate section -- a section that, the paper noted, had been a Sunday staple since 1901.
The big question no one asked at the time, however: What will become of the Ugliest Newspaper Ads in the World?
For years, Donald T. Sterling's absolutely dreadful full-page ads have been a part of the Real Estate section (reportedly because the mogul received bottom-basement rates) -- offending readers' taste and angering anyone with any sense of design -- including this guy.
I'd already noticed that the Sterling ads have been appearing less frequently -- now, where will they go?
