The Writing on the Wall

MELEE's tag on Albany's Central Warehouse is no more ---but not before police nearly arrested the crew hired to paint over the four foot high letters. Several weeks ago, people driving 787 looked up to see the astonishing work of graffiti, eleven stories up at the top of a sheer, stark wall. Not to condone the graffitistas who blight our cites, but you've gotta admit, MELEE's work was pretty ballsy. It's since been painted over, so we'll have to wait and see if MELEE strikes again ---meanwhile, read how the WP's ombud spanked the paper for it's dealingswith a notorious graffiti artist in Washington.
