(no subject)

So, I went "into town" yesterday. canyonwren posted a while back about some controversy. Her post is here.

Also, a newspaper story about it here.

The short version: Local BBQ place paints mural of pigs frolicking and generally enticing drivers to eat BBQ. Local city council comes back and disapproves.

Interpretation A: city council is nervous about naked pigs, and insists they be clothed.

Interpretation B: city council is nervous about cartoon pigs ruining the quaint old-timey flavor of town.

Interpretation C: city council insists that murals need a permit, regardless of prurient pig placement.

I'm just sad that the place was closed when I went by. For all that fuss, I hope they have some tasty food.
