Corridor filled with ugliness  

Credit:  Les Starks, Whitewater The Desert Sun, www.mydesert.com 9 December 2011 ~~

The undisputed Kings of Ugly are at it again. Glance toward the San Gorgonio Pass and their work is on full display: billboards and windmills in a crowded heap from Beaumont to Indio. The Riverside County Board of Supervisors has approved so many billboards they’ve run out of advertisers. Half of them are public service announcements or ads for the billboard peddlers.

And they’ve never denied a single wind energy application since 1975. Mile after mile of mismatched industrial trash strung up with a tangle of power lines. Energy-impotent skyscraper junk, idiotic enviro window dressing that has inflated our electric bills to the max and guarantees to perpetually increase them beyond current completely absurd levels.

Good news for those who, like our Riverside County elected officials, prefer gargantuan brightly lit development. There’s more on the way!
