seriously, if you don’t like graffiti why are you living in cabbagetown.

a long time ago, i wrote a post expressing incredulity that someone would consider the krog street bridge an eyesore.

you would think that people who aren’t in to that kind of thing probably wouldn’t want to live in cabbagetown, where purple houses, eclectic yard decorations and yes, graffiti, rule the day.

but apparently they do. today’s ajc contains an article about a man who actually sat in a tree and staked out the railroad fence along wylie avenue. apparently at around 2:00 am he caught some kids who were about to paint something, jumped out of his tree and assaulted them.

insane.

my favorite line in the article tho:

In front of police officers, Bowman asked the young men what they were doing out there so late at night, Jaeger said.

“You were in a tree at 2:30 in the morning,” they replied, according to Jaeger.

Bowman could not be reached for comment.

i really suggest that mr. bowman pack his bags and head to alpharetta.
