May be time for some MonkeyWrench Gang style fun out in your part of Kansastan. Living in the Great American Outback, we become attached to a nice uncluttered (by trees or whatever) horizon and when this kind of thing comes along, well, it just chaps. Hang in there. Pretend its a sculpture.MWC
MWC -- Wow, I hadn't thought about considering it "art"! That puts a whole new light on it. Gimme a minute to look out the window and I'll see if it looks better, or at least artistic.Um, no. Still butt ugly. Still obnoxious, obtrusive, repellant.But then, I've seen "art" that looked that way, too.You might be on to something....
Tom, I do agree that it is a genuine unpleasantry and that your wrath is justified. I am reminded of what Frank Lloyd Wright told someone who wanted to build a house out in the "country". He told them to go 20 miles out of town, and then go another 50 and build there. But even then we still can't escape the wireless towers. I saw some in the Jemez Mountains that were "disguised" as trees...they were even more hideous than ever.MWC
MWC -- Obviously it wasn't disguised very well! Imagine making something ugly uglier. It takes real talent to do that.
