Turner Broadcasting System, Inc., parent company of The Cartoon Network, and the New York marketing company Interference, Inc., have set a horrible precedent by agreeing to pay $2,000,000.00 (two million dollars!) to Boston area agencies and agencies "affected by the scare."
I'm sure officials in the nine other cities where the Lite Brite cartoon character signs were placed are kicking themselves in the head for not making a fuss over them so they could get in on the cash bonanza!
One blogger — I don't remember who — likened the affair to being afraid of the shadows a tree outside his bedroom window cast, and then, once he discovered it was a just a tree, cutting it down to punish it.
