Ah yes, there was Julio 204, Taki (the Greek youth Demitrios) 183, OMAR who asserted that "How many people can walk through a city and prove they were there? It's a sign I was here. My hand made this mark. I'm fucking alive!"

They were soon followed by hundreds of others seeking to express themselves via the subway system spawning the movement that was later to be termed hip-hop graffiti.

Even Mailer got in the act:
"Yes, the graffiti not only the feel and all the superpowered whoosh and impact of all the bubble letters in all the mad comic strips, but the zoom, the aghr, and the ahhr, of screeching rails, the fast motion of subways roaring into stations, the comic strips come to life."

That was then and now it's the tiny blood-sucking bedbugs epidemic.

What's next?

Are you prepared ranter for the highly possible floods from higher seas affecting mostly the low-lying financial district, port, power grid and subways?
