I honestly think graffiti is a good thing. Except for the "Julio wuz heer" kind of sh*t. But it looks worse when someone paints a huge white blotch over the graffiti.
Couldn't agree more. We need more Banksy's and Mr Brainwash's

My brother is a big follower of freight train hoppers (figuratively. He doesn't actually follow them) and he'll occasionally spot some art on the RR cars and tell me the story behind it, or name the artist who painted it. The funny thing about that is people rarely paint over train graffiti. My brother has taken photos of art painted a decade ago.

That reminds me. Some of the homeless people in my city like to jump trains to get to where they want to go. On the contrary, several of them won't leave the same block their whole lives...
