No Billy Goats

October 30, 1987

Perhaps H.B. Butler (Letters, Oct. 22) is too young to remember the turn of the century signs in a budding Los Angeles that read: "Post No Bills, Hitch No Billy Goats, Tie No Runaway Cows."

In those days, according to my Angeleno father, the broadsides and flyers that adorned poles and walls were tacitly accepted as symbols of free speech, but those tethered livestock really got one's goat.
