Thanks to a reader for sending:

“This is the corner of Maple View and High in Anacostia. Don’t know the name of the abandoned public housing complex, but the neighborhood has been trying for years to get the city to demolish this junk. The guerilla art tactic is new. I guess that’s a reference to Jacob’s Ladder? My theology is a little thin.”

Well this certainly seems like a good Horse’s Ass Award nominee. I can’t say I dig the art too much but I respect the effort. Think it’s a Jacob’s Ladder reference? What’s it gonna take to get this run down complex demolished?
