I find it a wonderful commentary. On what, I'm not sure, but there is a message there. The usual saguaro in the foreground has been replaced with human disfigurement of Nature (powerlines carrying juice to countless homes watching banal nonsense on TV while a spectacle of Nature is underway) and a past event betraying the decadent nonsense of those without feeling for what it would mean for the average kid in less wealthy countries to own those shoes. Seems like a meaningful APOD to me.
