Marking Territory

I've never been particularly bothered by spray-painted graphics on local buildings. I've never seen them obscure signs or writings placed by businesses. Although I realize it's illegal and expensive for business owners to correct, it's been just under the radar for me as a concern.

That has changed. On my way to The Grandmother's place a couple of days ago, I saw wall after wall after wall marked. Block after block after block of ugly bright pink vandalism. Not too bad if it'd just been one wall, but this seemed like it was everywhere I looked.

It's just like dogs pissing on fire hydrants to mark their territory. It makes me mad.
