Holiday Sinn

There are so many large companies that just don't get it. Like Radio Shack changing its name to The Shack, and now Holiday Inn changing its sign, logo, and lettering. That's just sick and wrong. Would you want to pull your family into a parking lot with that new cold, corporately stale sign out front? Not me. I'd look for the comforting old metal sign lit by lots of external light bulbs, neon, and a big gaudy star on top. That says "holiday"; the new sign says "my boss made me go on a business trip to discuss the budget and sales figures with Harris from Cincinnati." Dumb fucking bastards. Even the version they started using in the '80s sucked and was all business.
