A Lamp Post


It’s a lamp post! Get it? A post about a lamp? No? Okay. Anyway, while a lamp post is a perfectly normal sight, it could bring up some interesting discussion. For instance, why was it placed there, along with its siblings? Were there safety concerns? Also, safety would have had to be more important to the residents than, say, obnoxious light pouring in the windows at night. Or perhaps the lights are always burned out, and no one cares because safety isn’t much of a concern here. And what about the aesthetic of the post? It’s a lot prettier than some. What values are at play here?
