Signs of our times

Downey billboard

I think that I shall never see
a billboard lovely as a tree.
Perhaps, unless the billboards fall,
I'll never see a tree at all.
~Ogden Nash

As I drive on the nearby 5 freeway, I marvel as I pass billboard after billboard. They obstruct my view and batter me with advertisements. I'm grateful that Downey has very few billboards on its  streets.
