At last, a vandal with a conscience has emerged in Memphis. Instead of using the more common medium of spray paint, which we all know is next to impossible to either remove or paint over, this urban artist uses small strips of electrical tape. And instead of scrawling his messages on walls, he or she has chosen to go after a number of walk/don t walk signs in both downtown and Midtown Memphis. By taping over three illuminated fingers on the flashing hand that tells pedestrians when it s time to halt, this urban artist sends a pretty unmistakable message.
