    Ugh. If only that kind of one-color-fits-all paintbrush could be used for good, like repainting my condo.

    Agreed... I suppose because the apartment contractor did this as part of that project, perhaps it didn’t receive the same attention as a county repaving would’ve? And perhaps the county would have...
