Fix It or Remove It

Here is an example of one of my pet peeves in this country. Call it what you want......lack of follow up, poor maintenance, shoddy workmanship or just plain laziness. This billboard/sign was put up last June for Jordan's Army Day. It is located on the main road just past the King Hussein Medical Center but on the opposite side of the road. I drive past it several times every day. It's huge and it's ugly.

I thought it would be taken down when eventually all the other decorations, bleachers, observation posts etc. were removed but no, it remained. Numbers have fallen off, large sections are missing, wires dangle here and there and the whole thing looks strangely out of place. I guess it wouldn't bother me quite as much if it were an ad for Kentucky Fried Chicken or even say Pantene Shampoo. But it's the King!!!..............z
