Triplicate story from July 17 ("RE/MAX must remove logo art"):
"You need to separate art and commerce."
"You just can't play fast and loose with these documents. Once again, if you start allowing these off-site advertisements, you'll be negotiating with every business in town."
All bold and obtuse comments from Will Caplinger.
Why do "we the people" need to separate art and commerce? I mentioned "we the people" because I don't know who the "you" that Caplinger is referring to really is. Just who is the "you?"
"We the people" or council members? Also, Will, every business in town? That sounds to me a little exaggerated. Every business in town does not have an adjacent wall available to portray a beautiful, tasteful mural with a billboard. I would even like to take a ride in that hot air balloon. I wonder if Goodyear shares your separation of art and commerce concept? I wonder too if a commercial artist would share your frivolous philosophy?
August 23: As I write this letter, an attractive mural/billboard is being obliterated. What a shame! But like a poet once said, "You don't need a weather man around to know which way the wind blows." Especially if it is blowing a hot air balloon around.
