Sprite has a snazzy new ad on the MSN homepage called "Express Yourself through Street Art". It shows an image of a railroad yard, and you can "customize" your own "graff" on the freight cars. I contacted the Coca Cola Co. (who makes Sprite) and told a rep how irresponsible it was for a major company to condone and glorify trespassing on railroad property, and how hundreds of people are killed and maimed each year by trespassing. He seemed sympathetic, but I thought RR.net might be able to "get the word out" to them by contacting Coke and MSN and telling them how foolish it is to run such an ad.
