Come See What She Couldn't!
Two billboards near Montgomery, Alabama have been creating quite a stir with what some community members see as inappropriate advertising. The ads, in an effort to bring tourists to the inspirational woman's birthplace of Shoals, proclaim "see, what she couldn't." This was in reference to Keller being born both blind and deaf.
It seems the merit of witty marketing was lost in the haze created by mixing a stiff hick cocktail of illiteracy, religious fervour and incest.
