That's Methed Up!

This week the city of Albuquerque unveiled bronze statues of Walter White and Jesse Pinkman, the main characters from the Breaking Bad TV series.

Holy crap! Talk about missing the point!

The city does realize these two characters were ruthless meth dealers, right? Who regularly cooked and sold the stuff, and killed anyone who got in their way? 

What better way to honor the city than by commemorating a couple of criminals!

Mayor Tim Keller said he authorized the statues because both Breaking Bad and its prequel Better Call Saul have jump-started a film renaissance in New Mexico. That may well be, but surely there was a better way to call attention to the city?

I can't wait for other cities to erect similar statues to other TV characters, such as Hannibal Lecter, Joffrey Baratheon, Vern Schillinger, JR Ewing and Negan!
