Brickbat: Bring Your Camera



For many years, barns across the South sported ads for Rock City, a tourist attraction near Chattanooga. When Ben Morris bought an old barn near Cumming, Georgia, he was delighted to find a faded sign reading "See Rock City." So he slapped another layer of paint on it to bring out the letters and preserve a bit of history. Now, he's being threatened with fines for violating Forsyth County's 10-year-old ban on roof-top signs.
