Bad Rap

The business of graffiti is having a bleak week in NYC.  Lewy BTM's fresh tag on the Brooklyn Bridge was buffed and 5Pointz Graffiti Institute is expected to be razed.  While I'm compassionate to the FBI's interest in maintaining the National Monument's pallid maquillage (A child sporting a smoky eye and rouge comes to's inappropriate), it's sad to see 5Pointz "Spray and Shouted" from the fabric of the urban skyline.
