Graffiti - I don't know what it signifies locally, but to me, it exemplifies decay. For years, graffiti was confined to alley ways and obscure locations. Now regardless of where I look, it's ever-increasing. Graffiti has an insidious quality; seeing it daily desensitizes one; its prevalence almost makes the graffiti seem "normal." It's not normal and I'm tired of it. It makes a lousy first impression for a newcomer, and it's an embarrassment to those of us who live here. It makes no sense to tolerate it in a city wanting to attract business.
