    I predicted this back in 2001, when budgets were cut.

    it is
    inevitable.

    the decay will come again. and once the money is cut..

    what's the state to expect? they're pumping money into military industrial spending, iraq, and other crap and neglecting domestic problems. those billions could definately go to state's to pay for subsidies and what not..especially NYC!

    do you think if all writers went out and bombed da subway system, and kept doing it eventually they would run out of money to buff the trains, but the yards are soo up tight and hard to get into these days....the other day i was trying to come up with a plan on how to get in and i was scoping around and everything is watched and hard to bomb.....its amazing how they pay people to sit there and watch trains.....its like having people sittin there watching a parking lot full of cars.....

    Nah there is holes in any system. How come NYC's hardcore still hit them and loads of euro's do panels etc? (This is not a diss at new york as the USA vs euro argument is fucking old and boring!)

    Security is soooo tight after 9/11 that it makes any subway trains hard... the amount of security, cameras is ridiculous.

    I dunno... if there was some sort of Cou of freight writers, maybe. I'm saying it's doubtful, tho. Granted controling the graffiti 'problem' in NYC is a lot like controlling the rat problem... I'd imagine spray paint being banned before I could imaine walking into a terminal to see a car covered...

    Then there's thermal imaging:
