subway graffiti

on the subway, tuesday night, i saw this sign. the graffiti, written in between the print that says, in spanish, "reward for information leading to the arrest of anyone in posession of illegal firearms, call [this number]": "Why don't you talk about providing enough materials for the schools. Does Manhattan Comprehensive Day and Night High School have enough books for the students? Closing the low-rate graduation schools is not the solution."

its followed by the usual "Daniel is gay" "jeff was here" type graffiti. which only reinforced the surprise and excitement i felt seeing someone else's objections to the insane public policy of this city expressed in public. which makes me less inclined to scream and rage. but only by a little.

anyhow, thought i'd let my one reader (hi lee!) see this.

Nice. At one point I had started a blog of only subway grafitti on advertising. Silly/perverted, and politicaly/socially interesting. Because I really don't see any difference in the two.

But as I don't have a camera on me all the time, it was pretty sparse, and now it doesn't exist at all.

Maybe we should re-start it.
