In late August I went out to Washington Park Cemetery to see how it looked after Drury Displays made the wise and compassionate decision to remove the two billboards from land it purchased from a former owner. I have a lot of respect for Drury and its beautiful renovations of historic buildings in St. Louis and other cities, including San Antonio, and I was disappointed that they allowed their billboards to remain on sacred ground, regardless if “property rights” allowed them to do so. They had also hired a drunk idiot to mow their portion of the cemetery one time, that contained gravestones and burials, and he damaged dozens of them, I learned. I was shown them personally. I have read lots of misconceptions online, and the biggest one is that somehow the billboards were on land next to the cemetery. That is just not true. They were on a parcel of land with burials (many of the gravestones are damaged or sunken down so they’re hard to see in my photos) that was subdivided off from cemetery property by a financially insolvent former owner. By the way, who even looks at billboards anymore, particularly on that crazy, dangerous stretch of I-70 by the airport? I use my iPhone on road trips nowadays; I can check ratings and stop at places based off on-line reviews. Billboards are so Twentieth Century.
