NEW YORK — Some people don't like being bombarded with advertisements. However, I like billboards and wish more things would drape themselves in ads.
Upon making my first trip to Abby's apartment on the Upper East Side, I fell in love with her elevator, which features a split-screen TV that displays the time and weather and has a running commercial for its captive audience.
Having to stand there for those commercials (and not being able to zap them with TiVo's 30-second-skip button) might annoy some people. But we've all seen what happens when I'm given time to think about things without distraction.
