When I went out Thanksgiving Day to capture the spirit of Cleveland, the image that jumped out at me, along the completely empty streets of downtown, was the above, on dozens of "It's OK to Say No" sandwich-boards chained to public property all over my city (who authorized these to be chained to my streetlights?). I don't even get the image here. Is this a homeless person with one of their cardboard signs saying don't give to me, because homeless people do not typically have manicured lilly-white hands, like this model... and they don't wear designer flanel. So is this a lilly-white downtown Gen-Xer who clubbed some homeless person over the head and took his sign and wrote a new message on the back?
I find it pathetic our leaders are so out of touch with reality as to spend $millions trying to improve our self-image and public presence and then allow some morons to plaster the core of the city with this mindless downer design - downer message - demoralizing for all - who designed this pathetic attempt at mind control? Who... who was paid $10,000s to put this together? You OK being known worldwide for this message, Clevelanders? Do you want to support this cause... ever even heard of them? Learn, followers... your leaders speak:
They are wrong, but what else is new for NEO
