I don't see the problem. Yep, that's middle America. I kinda even like it. But then again I'm a planning philistine. :)

Yeah, that's a certain segment of blue collar Middle America. I may grimace when I see some of those front yard decorations, but that's just my taste. Frankly, it's still a neighborhood I could feel comfortable in -- except for one thing. I notice on the last phot the words "Buffalo Bills." What is wrong with these people? Are they Communists? Al Queda? It is simply un-American to support any team but the Green Bay Packers!

El Guapo: You are hereby sentenced to a week of evening art shows in a warehouse district in New York City. Openings will include an "art piece" where the "artist" installs a few dozen small electric fans, then live mikes said fans, processing the "random noise art" through a series of computer programs. You must dress only in black turtlenecks, and your acreage in Kansas will temporarily be replaced by a drafty loft.

Once you have been properly reeducated, please review these photos again. :)

BKM - Make no mistake the place is Butt Ugly. ;) That goes without question. I just don't feel repulsed by it as some do. I know that there have to be a thousand such homes to support each guy named Deiter who makes paintings of nothing while he wears black fishnet stocking, pumps and a black turtleneck. We can't all be pissy artist types. Who would make the brie? ;)
