Feedback: Technical limits face water tower promoters
Wherein signage brevity, (as espoused by Dr. Phil Aaron and Joe Lynn Barbee) is advocated
To the editor, CM
Well, OC and all the others commenting on the water tank signage should take a drive: Entering the LBN Parkway at exit 48 (State Police Post) and go west to exit 46. Then continue North on Hwy 61 and take a good look at the water tower as they come over the hill.
Now think hard about how much lettering can be put on the tank that the average, half-blind person like myself, would be able to read from that location.I really don't believe very much writing is going to show up very well.
Note: Shoot. You've just ruined my idea. I was thinking of an excerpt from James Joyce, to show off the literariness of Columbia, what with Janice and Henry Giles, Capwell Wyckoff, and the rest of the authors who hung out here and with Mark Twain having been conceived here and all. We ought to be thinking Big. Doesn't anybody have anything grandiose to suggest? Something to compete with the the H O L L Y W O O D sign? The St. Louis Arch? or at least the Chained Rock at Pineville or the Concrete Jesus at Eureka Springs, AR? Doesn't the whole future of Columbia pivot on this decision? Not to mention the course of western civilization? This is our time, Adair County! Surely there are a few other maniacal lunatics at large here - ED. Hyperbole aside, here's the OC picture for imagineering
