Chalk Graffiti Has Gotten Out of Hand, Spoils the Natural Beauty of UNC


Happy birthday, Julie.

Thanks to your friends, the whole campus knows that you are 20.

It seems like only weeks ago that chalk graffiti was just a minor nuisance in daily life.

However, following Marty's campaign to save all the souls on this campus from eternal hellfire, it seems that all people and groups with anything to advertise, protest, proclaim or complain about feel it is their right to vandalize our sidewalks. Not only are these messages irritating and redundant, but they are an eyesore on one of the most beautiful college campuses in America at a time of spring when it is at its best.

I can only hope that the chalk dreams of fellow students will deteriorate over the summer and in the fall we can return to where we were last semester: the Pit being the only place where I am bombarded with advertisements.

Do you agree with me?
