Let’s Hear it for the Vandals
What I love about this sticker (Damen Blue Line stop) is that it’s been placed here as a means of protest/criticism. Granted, it’s not spray-paint or graffiti, and not something I’d call outright vandalism per se, but this sticker is still (by definition) defacement. But lo and behold – along comes someone who disagrees with this pro-gun sticker and decides to express their own opinion by defacing the sticker, keying out several choice words.
This, my friends, is our country at its finest. Who would have thought a simple, scratched-up sticker could effortlessly summarize our nation’s ongoing debates about both the First and Second Amendments?
On looking at this, some might say Art. Some might say Protest. Me?
I say God Bless America.
