Letter: Graffiti shouldn't meet with praise

I read the positive comments made by an art student who said she believes that graffiti which defaces buildings and the like is "fun, colorful, and expressive," and that it isn't vandalism, "it's an art form" ["Where the tags are," News, Dec. 8]. She doesn't know right from wrong.

Anyone who defaces private property without permission is committing a crime.

My advice to these artists is to use only their own homes, interior walls or canvasses to express their artistic talents.
