A perfect solution to cell-tower ugliness gets shot down by AT&T
Turn cell phone towers into art? Too expensive, says AT&T, who would rather plant one at the entrance to the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway.

Corporate greed triumphs again--for now.

1. The sculpture pictured
in the link you provided is more hideous looking than is a plain tower.

3. After a while
a regular tower just blends in and isn't even noticed by the residents. The photo in your link looks like a carnival on steriods.

5. It would be great to see what artists came up with
I think a few of the sculptures further down the page would be perfect.

6. That's a great little sculpture park, for those of you who...
haven't visited it. I think it's an excellent and creative solution if the damn thing has to be built at all.
