  1. I am going to paint over that graffiti-covered wall on 10th and Galer. This however is only a short-term solution, as the nasty taggers will certainly be back. I think the city really needs a long-term solution for this wall, such as covering it in Ivy or painting a mural on it (taggers seem to have a code of ethics regarding the defacing of murals). As it currently stands, that wall is a blight on an otherwise beautiful part of Capitol Hill
