Peace, love and an $18,000 bill for IBM

Author: JT Smith

Chicago Tribune: "A 20-year-old Chicago man today admitted spray
painting IBM Corp. advertising symbols on a
Lincoln Park sidewalk and was sentenced to a year
of supervision and 30 hours of community service.

Additionally, IBM said today it has paid the city
more than $18,000 to cover the cost of removing
the "peace, love and Linux" ads from 105 sidewalks
in the Lincoln Park, Hyde Park, Wicker Park and
Lakeview neighborhoods."
