Graffiti Problem

July 10, 1994

Surely, you must be aware of the severe graffiti problem in our city. Therefore, why does The Times persist in aggravating the problem by posing people for news pictures in front of graffitied walls and buildings? Another glaring example of this practice is the large photo of mariachi Jose Jesus Vargas ("El Mariachi," June 26) posed with graffiti in the background.

Please be sensitive to the needs in our community by not publicizing, popularizing and glorifying graffiti in the pages of The Times.
