Violent, fat-hating Kaiser billboard is gone

I was told about this earlier in the month but I just confirmed it for myself so I thought I'd mention it. The "Beat Obesity With a Stick" Kaiser billboard that I posted about at the end of September is no longer there (Hwy 101 south, just south of San Francisco). There is a new Kaiser billboard in the same location.

The person I discussed this with and I figured that Kaiser had already planned to swap the billboard out at the beginning of October. But it is possible that protests had some effect. Thanks to the folks who wrote in to Kaiser about it.
