Improving Infrastructure with Graffiti

Belle Waring complains about America’s decaying infrastructure, its “blackness with soot and graffiti.”  Matthew Yglesias has the political commentary.

I’ll just say that I’d feel weird being in a place that didn’t have graffiti all over its old bridges and tunnels.  Obviously some of it is an eyesore, but the best stuff makes a substantial improvement.  I’ve previously mentioned the pittsburgh graffiti flickr group, all of which qualifies.  This reminds me that Monday I noticed some stuff in the wild style on the train tracks near my house that I can’t read.
