    It’s pretty and
    I think that the lady that complained sucks. If I was the painter I would use the “correct color Pallet” and paint a giant middle finger for that whiny ass to stare at. Although I am pretty sure the lady who complained might have bit off more than she can chew seeing how the Dispatch printed her name.

    When I lived out in Hilliard I got the distinct impression that there were more than a few residents who were suffering from either a bad case of rectal-cranial inversion or else just had a really big stick lodged in an uncomfortable position.

    I was very happy when I moved away.

    I think the correct color palette would make a great art piece of a huge painted pile-o-poo on the side of her garage-barn-thing.

    And yeah. Hilliard. Blech.

    They do have a decent Kroger though – they have the State Liquor agency and a better bakery. Bastards.

    I lived there for about 8 years and feel the same way you do. I was very happy to leave it behind.

    if somebody did that to their house in GV or certain parts of short north,or some other “historic” hood,the same crap would happen.

    I did a little research. The woman that complained lives in/owns the bookstore house on Main St. She doesn’t even have a clear shot at the woman’s barn. What a hateful woman. Don’t use that bookstore.

    That’s actually a big part of why VV ends at 5th Ave. There was talk in the late 80s or early 90s of it expanding to King (and thus including Dennison Place) but that would have meant restrictions on house and yard color/design, so the Dennison Place board voted it down.

    This thread needs an obscure Vonnegut reference.

    On the television screen were ballerinas.

    A buzzer sounded in George’s head. His thoughts fled in panic, like bandits from a burglar alarm.
    “That was a real pretty dance, that dance they just did,” said Hazel.
    “Huh?” said George.
    “That dance – it was nice,” said Hazel.
    “Yup,” said George. He tried to think a little about the ballerinas. They weren’t really very good – no better than anybody else would have been, anyway. They were burdened with sashweights and bags of birdshot, and their faces were masked, so that no one, seeing a free and graceful gesture or a pretty face, would feel like something the cat drug in. George was toying with the vague notion that maybe dancers shouldn’t be handicapped. But he didn’t get very far with it before another noise in his ear radio scattered his thoughts.
    George winced. So did two out of the eight ballerinas.

    So VV also suffers from cranial-rectal inversion?

    Kelley Daniel’s creativity is clearly lost on Hilliard, and probably would be in most suburbs where maintaining cookie-cutter conformity at any cost is all but the official town religion. There’s irony in the fact that Daniel’s most vocal opposition might very well be the most well-read person in town.

    Daniel should come down to the Short North, the University District or Grandview. We’re always looking for more artists, artwork and creativity over here. ;-)

    I’d say so. When I first bought my place here. It was a new build. Some pencil neck came over and asked to verify that my siding was made of wood and not vinyl. I also have a phony chimney on the roof.

    Suppose I’m not complaining. I love the neighborhood and it’s appearance. I wanted to be there.

    Don’t add Grandview to that list so fast. If someone complained, the cranial-rectal inversion could happen here also.
