Should Citgo Sign Be Changed?
T O P I C Discussion Started: 09-22-2006, 6:36 AM Add to the Discussion
A Boston city councilor said he thinks the city should change the well-known Citgo sign in Kenmore Square to an image of the American flag because of remarks made by Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez before the United Nations.

Chavez called President George W. Bush "the Devil" in a speech.

Citgo is the U.S.-based refining arm of Venezuela's state-run oil company.

What do you think? Should the Citgo sign be changed? Stay the same? Why or why not?

Take down the sign - put up a statue of liberty - or something with a bit of meaning and perhaps a dash of dignity - why anyone would care about a neon corporate logo is beyond me- fogetaboutit

"Like it or not the CITGO sign is almost a historic landmark"

ALMOST is an appropriate word. Long before the Citgo sign, was the green and white Cities Service sign. Now that's HISTORIC to us old fogies. 8-)

Absolutely, change the sign to a U.S. comnpany. We have tolerated enough disrespect.

Yes! The Citgo sign should absolutely be changed!!!

I would like to see it covered, as has already been suggested, with a large American Flag. I would not personally like to see the sign go altogether, since it's been part of the Boston skyline for so long.

However, when the people of Venezuela finally come around to electing an American-friendly president of their country, then the Citgo sign could make a reappearance.

It absolutely should go BLACK! It is deplorable that the Argentinian president gets away with hate towards ANY American! Like our President or not HE is running our Country. If we allow CITGO to be flashing in our faces we are not standing up for our country. We really should only promote GOOD business that helps promote the American way.

Mr. Chavez and Mr. Bush are both Great idiots. The question should be which one should GO First. The sign has no meaning.

Merci boucu,
