Spanish Steps Graffiti

That didn't take long

Anyone taking bets as to how long it would be 'til the bright white facade of our beloved Spanish Steps is marred by graffiti? Well, too late 'cause we're already there. The few large, blank canvases that are most likely to be tagged have been:

I'm not sure if I should be more angry at the taggers for hitting it or the city for forgetting that any large, blank surfaces in relatively quiet areas are bound to be marked up. I'd suggest mini murals or tile work depecting local history be added to these areas to help beautify and prevent this sort of tagging temptation going forward. New neighbors the McMenamin's brothers would probably appreciate it.

Wow. Who is this tagger? Why do they hate their city? Why would anyone try and crap-up their home?

You'd think that the spanish step area would be all a buzz with activity now with the remodel of the Old Elks. I can imagine that the presence of some burly construction workers would keep the taggers away. Seriously, is anything going on at the Elks at all, when are they expecting to open?

so dumb. especially considering how long the steps were run-down and creepy, and how long it took to get the money to complete the repairs. i know i sound like an old man, but how does spray-painting the word 'smut' on a blank wall accomplish anything? i don't get it.

About

Although I have another home on the web I thought it might be nice to lead by example a bit and put this blog system up to the test myself.

So far, so good... Funny how I build web tools for other people that are far better than the one's I have setup over on KFnet.
