I really thought I was pissed off and jaded about how much of America looks (i.e., ugly and depressing). Then I took a tour of architect James Howard Kunstler's Eyesore of the Month archive and realized someone is more acid than I am. His summation: "American space is generally chaotic, illegible, and disorienting." Some of the highlights:

Notice that Sonny's costume is what used to be considered appropriate for children age six and under.

Under this icon of narcotized complacancy, a population of TV zombies plods like a herd of cows to the hamburger factory.
Think of it as the gateway to a new Dark Age.
Is every child in this city a serial killer requiring maximum security incarceration during school hours?
