98 Crabapples for a Citgo Kick in the Pants


The Pats aren't on until 8.

This renders Jaynie bored.

So, instead of folding my laundry like a real-live-person would do, I'm going to take a moment to tell you that you can't replace the Citgo Sign with an American flag. [See the Fox News (puke, gak, gaaaaah) coverage here.]

Why?
Because the Citgo Sign doesn't represent Venezuela, or Chavez, or GW-with-horns;
rather, it represents centrality, community, and Fenway blasts.

The Citgo Sign is a Boston beacon. And an oblique derogatory comment should not be granted the power to take that away.

[And, if you're interested in reading a blogger who would vehemently disagree with me, click on over here.]

Ugh - no replacing the Citgo sign with anything! I was pissed when they fake spray painted the CW logo over it in that commerical. And that was fake!!!

Yeah, and I kinda love Chavez. Like, in a YAH!-change-the-world-cuz-no-one-else-is kinda way. So long live the sign!
