P&G signage carnage? A tipster writes in: "I work across the street from P&G, and I am sorry to announce that there are people removing the signage as we speak..." As reported here in December, they planned to stick around until February. Well, it's February. And as the bartender told me, the sign may be too brittle to take to the new place. Somebody get up there with a camera asap!
