Mrs. M’s comment is:

Sad. I was hoping no one in the design community would notice those casino ads. I saw a billboard a few weeks ago and couldn't believe it. I still feel indignant.

Indianapolis, in particular, struggles fiercely to grow its cultural awareness and tiny art community. Trust me, the components are there, they just receive very little love.

But yes, highly embarrassing.
