Art in private places

Sunday, August 27, 2006
In local news, apparently an enterprising, artful guy near near Newport, OR off Highway 20 has created a 40' x 60' replica of the Mona Lisa on the hillside of his property.

So, how do people respond to this "art in private places"? First, it seems that people are getting in accidents left and right when looking at this thing. So they send letters, complaining that someone has made the world a more beautiful place. kgw.com even runs a poll that simply says "Do you think Mona Lisa should be erased for safety reasons?" (of course, lacking any sort of context for the question.)

That's right, let's get rid of it. Someone hurt themselves! Oh my God! Let's covor this thing up right away. Let's ignore the fact that everyone who drives past it and sees it is bettered in one way or another, let's just get rid of it.

I feel your pain. We no longer can take responcibility for our own actions. The thing will wash away on it's own soon anyway.

How can we blame someone else for our inatentiveness while driving. Americans just take driving for granted. Just look at all the cup holders we need. For the longest time forign car makers didn't even have the concept of why a cup holder was needed.

We do too many other things while we drive. It's time to hang up and drive.
