plywood

I get the woolies when I see plywood going up where windows once were. That's not something you want to see in your neighborhood, or thereabouts. No one wants the Katrinafication of their area, by that I mean post-calamity destruction, with plywood preventing further ruin or intrusion. Of course, plywood is good if you're talking about building, rebuilding, or reinforcing. So, it's not that the plywood itself is the problem, is it? Plywood is plywood. Or "plywood" is "plywood." There's a metaphor in there somewhere.
