Inked:

Does the the spray-painted word above all the others read "ink"?

I beleive it says "irk." I generally try to confine my graffiti & vandalism activities to Montgomery County.

you do know that these are names of dead guys...right? As in killed.

That's right Inked, bomb the suburbs.

I noticed some RIP markings, but it did not occur to me that all the names might belong to dead people.

inked said...

If anonymous is right about that, I'd better withdraw my crack about my vandalism & graffiti activities. Apologies.

Doesn't matter if they are all dead people. If they are doing it on someone else's property who didn't give permission then it is vandalism and graffiti.

I'd just rather it didn't look like I generally enjoy making jokes about dead people. The concept of a wall of the dead (i.e. a place you write someone's name when they die) didn't really pop into my head when I saw this (possibly because it there are references to neighborhoods as well as people non the wall). Just as a side note, it looks like someone lives in this house.

The downsides of having an end unit townhouse--thats very disrespectful, the other day I saw someone relieving himself on the end unit towhhouse on my block. Since when did living on the end of the block mean your wall was public property?

This is actually more of a mid-block alley. The marked-up side of the house faces the alley. There is similar (but less voluminous) writing on another house nearby.
