Herbert Pulger's artwork will no longer be featured on Chicago's city stickers.

After a week of discussion, Chicago has pulled the plug on 15-year-old Herbert Pulgar's design for Chicago's new city sticker, citing the possibility that it includes references to Chicago gangs.

Justin Kaufman, WBEZ's head of talk programming, stopped by to give his take on "Sticker-gate" and defend his decision to give it less attention than did other local media outlets.
