Like the doughboy statue, Butler is also a familiar sight at Veterans Day ceremonies held every year at Monument Terrace.. he's missed just one since 1918.

Everyone has seen personal ads in newspapers and magazines.
But how about a personal billboard?

[SUPER=03-New York, NY]


John Greeley rented a 20 by 36 foot billboard along side an apartment building in New York City.
The man who describes himself as a "handsome 38 year old single white male", and as the president of an international fitness business is looking for an "attractive, intelligent woman, 23-35" to make his life complete.
Greeley says he has received more than 300 calls since the ad was posted last month.
But if you think this is for you, wait until you hear the cost of this very public plea for love... 27 thousand dollars for three months.
