Times are tough, cities are poor, basic services are in decline.

But should local government start selling display ads to make up for lost revenue? According to a New York Times article today Baltimore is considering selling ad space on its fire trucks. Other cities, according to the story, sell ad space on city bus straphangers and on the outside of school buses.

Haven't heard of anything like this out of the Condon administration. But if you start seeing Viagra wraparounds in the transit plaza, remember to thank those folks in Baltimore.
