It’s official. The City of Conway has given the Yarn-Bombing Grannies until 12’o clock noon-sharp- tomorrow-Wednesday. April 18th, to take down the yarn bombing on the tree and a light pole on Laurel street-or else.
An inside source has confirmed that only one compliant has been made about the street-art. Only ONE complaint! And even though the same source has confirmed that several calls have been made by citizens to keep the yarn-bombing, the City of Conway still intends to rob Laurel Street of its creative decoration.
Really Conway? After one little complaint, are you really going to forcea group of grannies to take down their beautiful (Biodegradable !) yarn that is hurting absolutely no-one and draws tourist attention.
One thing that is so shocking to me is that it only took one complaint and the city jumped on this like ugly on an ape. When has the city ever taken care of something so fast after someone complained? Never. It just took the right one complaining, that’s all.
This is just going too far. When is enough going to be enough? Has the world become so politically correct and so darn callous that we would stoop so low has to spend preposterous amounts of time and energy on ridding one little tree of its colors? This is America for crying out loud!!
It’s ridiculous that this is even an issue! And that is why I am upset. While the in-justice done to the grannies over this is just plain "gawd awful", the real issue is the fact that the city is attacking our citizens and business owners when they should be focused on more important things. Like maybe fixing the speed bump on the residential section of Laurel Street. One whole side of the thing is missing and it is a road hazard. That’s just the tip of the ice-burg.
I think the grannies should protest. Show the city just how silly it is being by choosing to spend time on taking something that brings interest, happiness, and creativity to our street.
You know, I seem to remember an organization that did not like color or creativity. Hitler’s Nazi Regime.
Watch out, next they will be saying that businesses can’t put up their own flags for Independence Day.-They will force everybody to use the same-city issued-flag-You wait! I bet you a quarter.
