The ugly Christmas tree

So there it is....

The Christmas tree the city put up in Reading, PA that residents think is so ugly it should be replaced.

I guess the tree is pretty dangly, but hey, it was a last-minute replacement.

I do think part of the problem here is the half-assed job of putting lights on the tree.

Finish the tree Reading, PA...more lights. That would certainly help.

They're collecting money now to replace their Charlie Brown tree.

This will be one of the stories I discuss on the Monday PhilCast show in the second hour after Pack Yak from 3-4.

....discussing while it sounds like it will be snowing 4-6 inches outside the Woobie Weather Window!
