Very nice stuff. I like.

Taggers have been scaling the jungle gyms that display our freeway signs. This is on 94 but I've seen it on 96 too. Nimble scamps.

I used to be with it, but then they changed what 'it' was. Now, what I'm with isn't 'it,' and what's 'it' seems weird and scary.

Not only do I hope they actually try to catch these idiots that are doing this to the overhead signs, they should prosecute them to the fullest extent. Set the example that this will not be tolerated. These signs cost us, the taxpayers upwards of 10K each.
Workers will have to risk their lives in lane closures to change these signs out, because they really can't be cleaned. The reflective sheeting becomes damaged when cleaned with anything solvent-based. These lane closures on our freeways will also cost the travelling public and business unnceccesary dollars in the form of user delays-loss of mobility, etc. Traffic backups can be dangerous for the travelling public also. How many rear end crashes will we see because of some idiot taggers new idea. This damage is all over too, not just isolated to one or two signs in the area.
All graffitti is bad, but to do this, to such an expensive item, that costs so much in dollars and time, is inexcuseable. These are not buildings.
It's not as easy as it used to be finding time to let my mind wander.

I see more of the same tagging on overpass signs every week. This is the work of a man obsessed.

How does he do it? It's easy to say "he shimmies up like a monkey in a coconut tree" but I think there's more to it, like rope and harness shit from REI.

Is 4 years, 2 weeks, and 3 days the longest time between posts on any thread?

Someone had recently been tagging the shit out of surfaces up and down the Livernois corridor. Word is that person was caught in the act by folks from the neighborhood and administered a heaping dose of street justice. X-post to crazy white people who drink their meals through a straw.

I'd rather wish we could x-post to crazy white people who have four-oh's poured on their graves.
