I wanted to see the Cheesecakes.  Other than that I loved the idea of the article but it deserved more examples and heft.

It was an article based on a half dozen highly sarcastic (and funny) tweets. I don't know how it could get much more heft unless it was to spread its criticism around to other crassly designed urban landscapes. I would have liked an interview with the designer, and maybe even with the owners who didn't fire the designer. I've never even seen a Cheesecake factory and I don't miss the experience.

Yes but the comedy potential is there.  Cutting remarks are like sugar on the ground to my ant-like attraction.
