The Streets ARE Deciding
Fuck the haters and the pretenda-street artists. Only the posers and fame hounds try to hit Banksy's pieces when they are first announced, and then it seems they forget after the first day or so.
Earlier, a wanna-be tagger wrote 'Let the Streets Decide' over the plexiglass on Banksy's Sledgehammer Boy. But the streets are deciding. Every day. Like here. Banksy's Twin Tower's piece was protected by plexiglass, and then painted over completely, then repaired, then the glass was smashed out, and now the plexiglass has been removed. The exciting thing about the streets is the organic action. You never know what's going to happen. Even when something gets protected, that''s not the end of the story. The streets are still deciding.
