Photo Opportunity

Does anyone in Fort Worth know the location of one of these billboards?

A mortuary transport service owner named Donald Short was ordered by the courts to pay for them as part of a corpse abuse plea bargain deal.
I have a deep, genuine need to climb onto one of these billboards and have my picture taken while holding a bucket of white paint and a brush. If anyone has an old hearse that I could rent for the day, I'd like to park it underneath. It would draw a crowd, don't you think?

We could all get together, wrap ourselves like mummies, and picket the billboard. The media would be tripping all over themselves to talk to us.

I can see it now.
"Acme Funeral Home Discriminates Against The Dead" on two dozen picket signs. "Acme Funeral Home - I wouldn't be caught dead there". etc etc etc.

Actually, I don't see what the big deal is about this. Once I'm dead, they can do whatever they want with me. Rent me out to a colony of necrophiliacs. I'm not gonna care.

I think it is on 121, somewhere between downtown FW and where 121 passes thru 820.

Glad to have you back.
I was afraid that I'd accidentally said something nice about the Star-Telegram and offended you in some way.

Thanks for the info.
I'll head that direction in a hearse.

The billboard is facing east as one drives 121 between Hadley-Ederville Rd and Beach St. I pass it daily on the way to the dog park. I nearly ran off the road trying to read it.
