Contrasts beauty and sign 'tackiness'

In last Sunday's editorial, "A good sign ordinance," you hit the nail on the head. Calling signs a visual clutter is half of a word; the other half is sight pollution.

The best example of how these sign companies are robbing us of the beauty of Mother Nature is to cross I-20 on Belair Road. Look toward Atlanta and see beautiful trees provided by Mother Nature. Then look toward Augusta and see billboards and tacky signs (sight pollution) provided by greedy sign companies destroying the natural environment for profit.

When I cross I-20 on Belair Road I only look toward Atlanta. Such a shame when the Garden City is in the opposite direction.
