Public health announcements: they make me vastly uneasy. And none more so than the new NYC anti-soda campaign, which actually just makes me vastly queasy: Do we really need some in-your-face ad agency terrifying us with PSAs à la the text-messaging teenagers car crash video […]

Thai Rath Publishes Carradine Hanging Photo, Sparks Outrage
