Ambiguity can sometimes be a virtue -- think about good abstract art, for instance.

In the context of the written word, it can also make for an intriguing blog post comment.

Here's what Matt Vangsgard had to say about the sad story of David Witt having his intricate mural at Stillwater's Freight House bar and restaurant painted over when he was just hours away from completing it:

While the technical ability of the painter is impressive, I don't consider this to be art. Where is the human interpretation of the image? Where is the originality? I know how this is created . Boring, absolutely boring. Technically brilliant, and totally boring.
