I have this HUGE pet peeve. Graffiti! Hawaii spends way too much money just trying to keep up with painting over the graffiti that idiots (yes, IDIOTS!)deface public and even private property. I see these patchwork paint jobs all over the place. I wonder why the city doesn't just use the same color paint?
There are organizations trying to combat graffiti, but it's an ongoing problem through the ages.
The son of my classmate, Diane did an Eagle Scout project mobilizing a huge group of volunteers to paint over graffiti that covered a skate park (above photo). We all felt really great seeing how nice it looked after we were done painting in the hot sun. (below photo)
I passed that park a few days ago and saw graffiti once again scrawled around it.
I saw this piece of wall defecation down the street from our house.
Somebody (I won't say who) said some of the graffiti is actually artistic. I was told that it's called Tagging where idiots decorate their name and call it art.
When we were in Japan three years ago, my brother took photos of graffiti we saw there.
You can see below where the owner or the city tried to paint over it. At least they used one color.
I don't consider graffiti art. We shouldn't make excuses for dunderheads defacing property. If they want to do this, they should do it on their own property, some place in the back yard where nobody has to see it. Or... hey, why not do it on a piece of canvas and stick it up on their own bathroom wall. That's where all cr-- belongs. Oops! Sorry... got carried away...
OK... that was my rant for the day.
I'm going to my happy place now and will try to think of something nice to write about. I've got Tai Chi tomorrow. That should calm me down.
