And Lo, Retribution Was Swift. Very Swift.
Yesterday's off-centre graffiti is no more. After but a day or two, it's universal wisdom is already lost to the ages (except for a short appearance here on my blog). I suspect the council is engaging in new, tough tactics along the lines of 'fame is ephemeral in this tunnel, so take your spray cans and skedaddle, kiddies'. I wonder who will tire of the game first? Teens are notoriously resilient. But then country councillors are a stubborn bunch too.
On the weirder side of municipal life, apparently Satanism = civic pride and social responsibility. You can read about the campaign to raise funds that will enable the Satanic Temple to adopt a New York highway here: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-satanic-temple-adopt-a-highway-campaign
There are buttons and mugs for purchasing, and noble aims are proclaimed:
This campaign will do more than keep the Highways clean. It will help to send a clear message to the world reaffirming American religious plurality. We will demonstrate that all religious perspectives are indeed free to engage their communities in a productive manner.
