I hate it, it just ruins that part of the drive....Nope...if I wanna see a cross, I will go to church. But, I also believe in Free Enterprise, along with an individuals Private Property Rights...so whoever can stick whatever up...they are free to do so...and I am also free to carp about it every time I drive by!!
Agree in some places, disagree in others. Thought I'd hate the sight of giant wind turbines on the prairie, now find them interesting. Might feel different if I lived beside one, but I don't.

Of course, as far as interrupting views around Branson goes, I'm reminded of the old tongue-in-cheek Andy Williams joke about how unspoiled he found the area to be...
