We called it "mooning" and developer Michael Simkins is about to "moon" everyone in Miami.
The Miami Beach resident is asking the City of Miami's permission to build a 633-foot tower in downtown Miami. It will have two-acres of LED panels that will blast TV ads in every direction for 25 miles. It will be ugly, horribly distasteful, the ultimate statement in greedy commercialism.
It's the craziest thing I ever heard of but it just may happen. If it does we'll have to look at Simkin's daunting derrierre for decades.
On June 25th and 28th, the City of Miami commissioners will vote to allow it or not. It could be a whole new take on the old song,
"Moon Over Miami".
You can help stop this from happening. Call or e-mail city and county commissioners now. Don't let them tell you, "It's not in my district so it's not my problem".
If Simkin's tower is allowed, it will be everyone's problem.
