Just for the record...

...I really don't like billboards in general. There are many billboards, across the whole state of South Dakota, that bother me for various reasons: sometimes rhetorically, sometimes ideologically, sometimes aesthetically...some even bother me for all three reasons.

What I don't understand is, why do we have to plaster advertisements on every available vertical surface? Why can't benches at bus stops just be benches? I remember back when I drove to work, I used to pass a particularly garish "Rent This Space!" sign on a bus stop bench, and I was so tempted to rent it just so I could paint it a nice, soothing color that I actually figured out the cost of how much it would take to rent it for a year.
