Re "Keeping L.A.'s signs vital," Critic's Notebook, March 26

Is there anything that makes Los Angeles look more like Podunk than the proliferation of gigantic Lady Liberties?

Is it true that Times architecture critic Christopher Hawthorne cannot tell the difference between an April Greiman mural, a Thom Mayne graphic and a Pepsi building wrap that is big enough to be seen from outer space?

To defend any large graphic mounted in public space as somehow part of the cultural patrimony of Los Angeles is to succumb to the banal idea that anything goes -- an idea that Los Angeles should outgrow.
