The red hare-ing that is graffiti.

|FIELD NOTES:||It’s been a while since we’ve featured Poser’s rabbits. We’ve missed you, pal! Many people would have a negative knee-jerk reaction to the obvious graffiti. Yet, despite being equally unlawful, the ads beneath the graffiti go relatively unchallenged. Why is it that in cases like this, where the surface in question is in no danger of lowering property value or costing owners extra money in repairs, there is still a bias against this sort of creative contribution? Why do ads get a free pass for profiting off public space while artists are villainized? If authorities turn a blind eye to advertising agencies should they not also do the same for graffiti artists?
