Chesapeake Energy's Weed Infested Welcome To Woodhaven

Every time I take a walking tour of my neighborhood I walk by the increasingly eyesore-ish scene you see in the picture.

This is a Welcome to the Woodhaven neighborhood installation.

Chesapeake Energy uninstalled the original Welcome to the Woodhaven neighborhood installation when Chesapeake Energy dug up this location as part of their installation of an underground pipeline carrying non-odorized natural gas from my neighborhood Chesapeake Energy Barnett Shale Natural Gas Extraction Fracking Site.

When Chesapeake Energy installed a new version of the Welcome to the Woodhaven neighborhood installation it was not an eyesore.

Now, a few months later, the welcome to the Woodhaven neighborhood installation is a weed infested mess.

Is this some sort of visual metaphor representing the ongoing damage Chesapeake Energy has done and is doing to Fort Worth and the surrounding area?

The City of Fort Worth used to get cranky with soon to be former Fort Worther, soon to be Marfian, Don Young, because of his natural landscaping. Is the City of Fort Worth going to get equally cranky with Chesapeake Energy over the mess Chesapeake Energy has made at the northwest corner of Boca Raton Boulevard and Bridgewood Drive?

I suspect not. And that is sort of perplexing....
