  1. Why is the state wasting the money on a mural that will only go the way of the murals on Rt. 6? It’s going to get tagged until it’s unrecognizable, and the anti-graffiti task force is going to paint it grey. (Not that the anti-graffiti task force is the problem)

  2. Put a thin electric see-through mesh fence over it so the taggers get zapped sort of like a bug-light. That would show ’em!

  3. …so much for the bug zapper. 🙁
