Read this piece from yesterday's New York Times.

1. Where, and when, does the author undermine the concept, put forth early, of the "bad old days"?

2. Who looks out a subway window? Isn't acid etching a kind of border dispute settlement, leaving all the ugly-ass aluminum to the MTA's Virginity Assertion Initiative and ceding writers the much smaller real estate of windows that no one ever looks through? Except to make sure they haven't missed their stop? Which you can still do, even with acid tags? (EXCEPTION: When you're rolling on elevated tracks. And if you're going to Shea, it's wicked fun to look at all the warehouses, especially the one with the polka dots.)
