Grand Junction: A billboard in
western Colorado that used caricatures to depict President
Barack Obama as a terrorist, gangster, Mexican bandit and a
gay man has been taken down.

The sign along an Interstate 70 business loop in Grand
Junction drew criticism from local Republicans and Democrats.
The artist, Paul Snover, of nearby Loma, says he has received
what he calls "very hateful" e-mails and phone calls.

Snover has said he couldn`t reveal who paid for the
billboard. The Daily Sentinel said he couldn`t be reached
yesterday to explain why it was removed.

The owner of a company where the sign was erected says
she`s glad it`s gone because it attracted such a crowd.
