Shire is a Lexington company that got permission earlier this year to sell a drug that allegedly helps people with chronic dry eye disease. You know, like Restasis. But unlike the company that makes that, Shire's decided a good way to advertise their product is to fill the sidewalks of Boston with chalk ads overnight. The city reports it's sending out parks-department crews to deal with the dry chalk issue - by washing the crap off.
Shire's headquarters is conveniently located off the intersections of 128 and 2, should anybody wish to do a little impromptu chalking. We're sure they'd love it.
A mural showing Charles River rowers on a wall in Lincoln Street that recently went up has already been defaced by some jerk who's doing his part to "keep Allston shitty." Universal Hub users who think that not posting photos of such defacement is equivalent to lynchings can see the damage. Maybe some volunteers can do for this mural what the Mayor's Mural Crew recently did for a defaced mural in Roslindale.
Hull Police report an officer on routine patrol caught a group of teens red-handed after they allegedly spray painted graffiti all over Fort Revere on Boston Harbor around 12:30 this morning. Read more.

The rest of us don't share that sentiment.

I called the non emergency police phone number and they came right away.

Zik is among the many outraged to see graffiti scrawled all along the Dartmouth Street side of the Copley Square library this morning.
"Not cool," Mister Jason opines after seeing a defaced 6 outside Fenway Park last night.
A graffiti-hating citizen reports this "illegal graffiti" on Bolton Street in South Boston. We await the city blasting this off, to be followed by a complaint about unleashed dogs running amok on Bolton.

Harry Wong noticed today that somebody spent a fair amount of time decorating a Green Line trolley at the Cleveland Circle yard with a large representation of a classic English word.
Alas for Tagger Dude, that's an un-rebuilt old trolley, so it's not going anywhere, except to get fixed and repaired (the Globe reports it's not one of the trolleys heading to upstate New York for a major overhaul). Also, when it comes to taggers, T cops go into Mountie mode.
