Childish vandalism, or entertaining art project?

What would the world look like without the letter R? It would p obably look at lot diffe ent. At least that's what one person thought in cosmopolitan Greencastle, Indiana. Apparently, someone has gone throughout the city removing all of the Rs from those hideous signs that populate the Midwest landscape. Childish prank? Someone making a political statement by drawing attention to these eyesores? Or part of an artists larger plan to transform a city? I'm not sure how many conceptual artists live in Greencastle, but my hope is that there is one that keeps pushing buttons.

My favorite quote from the article came from the president of Headley Hardware: "We've lost our Rs. And we want them back."

Vandal: U's don't realize this is a legit statement of free expression

District attorney: We've lost our K's, I think

ascetic: I personally think we'd be better off without all the X's
