“The ramblings and grumblings of author Ad Hudler”

Dear Ugly Police: We need help down here.
Tuesday, June 18, 2013

Today's rant: A drive through Georgia has become mighty ugly in recent years. One reason is because the state does a poor job of picking up trash and blown-out tires. (That's a shout-out to you, Guvnuh) But here is the bigger culprit:

Huge, towering billboards-on-a-stick, several at a time...as thick as trees in some spots.
A drive through Georgia feels like a flea market these days. I am thrilled to cross into Florida or Tennessee to escape the ugliness. Certainly, you see these things in all states, but Georgia for some reason has not limited the density of them.

Now, they're starting to pop up along the interstates in Alabama. Not cool!

I love living in the South because the people are friendly and the land is beautiful, but if this goes on we will be mighty ugly indeed. Like Georgia. Poor, homely Georgia ... you once were so lovely.

Wow. I am so glad you aren't in Sevierville TN traveling toward Knoxville. That's been an eyesore for over a decade
