A Tagger's Canvas
As we sat at a train crossing waiting for a 100+ car freight train to clear the highway, I noticed a lot of "art" on the cars. I have to say some of it was pretty interesting. I can't say I understood all of it - but it was appealing to look at. There was the occasional "f*** the cops" message, but other than those it took some talent to do the work - and I imagine most of it done in the dark. The train companies should just give up and hire the taggers to decorate the cars. It would add jobs to the economy, enhance the look of the boring freight car, and make the wait at the crossings interesting. Just a thought...
