I think this image says it best. A street light was taken out in front of Minerva’s downtown in front of Shriver. I laughed about the caution tape and the light was still operating. On the ground. Is it just me, or does the city seem a bit short staffed these days? Well, when you pay the COS a quarter million a year, and you don’t have well compensated staff to go out, and you know, shut off the light, so no one gets electrocuted.

3 Thoughts on “The State of City Politics

    How do you know this is not a part of the Sioux Falls Sculpture Walk? If you ask me, it symbolizes man’s attempt to regulate a world that is becoming more wild, where crime is rampant as evidenced by the yellow police tape.

    ( and Woodstock adds: “That’s what I hate about modern art, because everyone has their interpretation of it, while the Mona Lisa, well, that’s just a lady with a smirk”….. “Oh, but on another note, Dua Lipa has a new song out called ‘Illusion'”, which I guess kinda feeds into this whole modern thing …. and further more, I could look at her smirk all day long”….. 🙂 )

    Sculpture Walk, indeed. While, the potential for electrocution represents how a consumer of art can become a part of the art, which is a growing movement in art that I believe is better known as the potential victimization, or realization should we say, that overall immersion art has to offer.

    Also look at the road condition, the painted cross walk (or partially painted) and many other things downtown, and itll even tell a bigger story about our city. Even many of the lights need updating and work. overall our city is leagues behind others in upkeep, modernization and overall aesthetics so look even closer
