How often do you see positive messages that do not entail or encourage consumption? I saw this several months ago, on my way to martial arts practice at the studio on University Avenue in St. Paul. A few weeks later, it was painted over--gone. The disappearance of this word sent me into an internal tirade: Why would anyone want to erase Love? Must we treat all uninvited expressions in public space as bad? Who cannot discern between an act of tresspassing, and an act of generosity?
