Iowa-ldn’t Go There

3 May

On our recent trip to Nebraska I had my camera prepped to take pictures of the “Nebraska . . . the Good Life” sign as we crossed the Missouri River.  The sign always gives me warm-fuzzy feelings, and I’ve probably taken fifteen pictures of it, although I can’t seem to find any on my hard drive right now.

To my great dismay the sign was not there.  But before I experienced that let down, I was presented with an even more disturbing departure from Iowa.

Really, Council Bluffs?  Loads of people find art threatening enough without making its public displays so violent.

Then again, maybe these were a neighborly gift from the Nebraska Tourism Department.
