Tearing Down Walls
I’ll keep this one short as the photos tell the story.
In 2003, the publicly held company for whom I worked acquired a competitor. Their former Denver headquarters became the parent company’s new Colorado facility after the takeover.
I was in town for one work related endeavor or another and stumbled upon a rather disturbing sight. I had my camera handy and took the first two photos.
So pretty from a distance…
What the fuck?
Five minutes later I was on the phone with an HR representatives filing a formal complaint that was peppered with several red flag trigger words. The tenor of my voice must have made it clear that I wasn’t going to let it slide because upon my return to Denver just a few weeks later I photographed a wall that looked quite different.
To honor god? No. I don’t think so.
Never let this kind of crap go unchecked. Ever. Make them keep their god crap to themselves or within the confines of a religious setting – like a house of worship or some other religious organization and NEVER within the bounds of a publicly-owned business.
10 Years After
In Decennial commemoration of the great god wall defeat, Very Gay Joel (our Godless Bastard Denver correspondent and abomination in the eyes of the lord) snagged this photo of the wall as it appears today.
I still win.
