Why Wire?

I've just left the beautiful island of Maui, a place made ugly by electric & telephone cables strung willy-nilly over dramatic landscapes.

Travel the newly refurbished Mokulele highway out of Kahului. Look at the lush greenery, fat strips of ugly wires, and behind them the West Maui mountains. Look east to the lower slopes of Haleakala volcano, another scrum of wires, and the majestic mountain top. Perhaps you'll see a rainbow sliced to segments by electric lines...

Such pollution of our landscape is far too common.

Utilities companies:   please put wires out of sight.
