The corporatizing of America

Some of you may have heard about KFC putting their logo in a Nevada town in such a way that it would be visible from a plane. (I saw the link in kunstarniki's LJ, but I'm sure it also made the rounds in other ways.)

That was bad enough. This is much scarier.

Golden Gate Bridge to explore corporate sponsorship options.

I am at a total loss here. What can they possibly be thinking?!

This just reminds me of what I heard a wise DJ say when they were building the Staples Center in Los Angeles. That what a company really wants is for millions of annoyed people stuck in traffic at one of the busiest freeway intersections in the world to look up and suddenly have someone to be annoyed at: "Damn traffic, damn Staples!"

    I'm concerned and I don't primarily use DW. I am thinking about backing up my content there, but I'm just not sure about how it will work out. I do need to get on this, though.
