Following last week's gruesome attack on one of its Canadian buses, Dallas-based Greyhound has yanked a nearly year-old ad campaign -- this one, to be specific, which was aimed at the 18- to 24-year-old would-be bus rider. No doubt, a very wise move. Odd thing is, the ads were already supposed to have been yanked, as local spokesperson Abby Wambaugh notes the multimillion-dollar campaign had already come to an end. --Robert Wilonsky
