City Anonymous Whine About Inevitable Development

This morning brought the following letter to I, Anonymous. The letter is boring and riddled with typos and the letter-writer’s motivating complaint has no merit, but…enjoy! (Sic throughout.)
The wine/coffee bar called “LIBERTY” is trashing up street poles all up and down 15th ave east. The street appeal will soon have the appearance of broadway or the Pike/pine area. A group of us good neighbors have informed them that all street pole ads are being removed to keep our neighborhood looking nice but they keep placing the ads higher on the poles and we keep taking them down. I decided to live in this neighborhood because it was not trashy and fairly clean compared to down the hill—Broadway. This may seem like a small problem to sum but its amazing how the pole litter attracts more pole litter. I think this establishment is a BAD NEIGHBOR in a good neighborhood. Just wanted to inform somebody. I’m in the process of figuring out how to get other businesses on the street to tell the owner of this place to respect the neighborhood.
Some might say “respecting the neighborhood” means accepting totally legal street advertising (dismissed by Anonymous as “pole litter”). Some people also know how to spell “some.”
