Tagging's cool, we all know that. And at a time when the city is literally laying off hundreds of people, and services are being cut everywhere, it's nice to know that Seattle Parks gets to blow part of its meager budget trying to clean up after the assholes who tagged Counterbalance Park on Lower Queen Anne last night.
And admittedly, it's an impressive feat--these guys must have hung off ropes or something. [Correction: Not that impressive; fire extinguishers are apparently the standard method, according to comments below. Duh, kind of obvious from looking at it.] The parks staff themselves were baffled at how the taggers pulled this off. They seem to make a specialty of scaling sheer vertical surfaces, as they (or someone akin to them) did in 2008 on the wall alongside Vain salon in Belltown.
