You’re pretty hard on people for something that I think is ultimately petty. For all we know, the “R” could have fallen off due to the wind.
This is a real possibility because I took the picture at 4:30 in the afternoon on Easter Sunday. My wife and I noticed it on our way home from an Easter dinner with friends. It was taken outside of a local gym. I’m sure that no one was at work on Easter to notice and/or “fix” the sign.
What you’re regarding as “blatant ignorance, stupidity, and unadulterated unconsciousness” can be chalked up validly to the “circumstances of life.”
Lighten up. I hope you’re as agitated by the real evils of this world.
