Public canvases

In regard to News Briefs [Dec. 29], "Oakland art student's graffiti grade 'J' for jail": I really had to laugh at this one and suggest being this aspiring artist, illustrating his art on our public property -- that gives us the right to do our art on his car, house, face and body -- and whatever else he owns.

I'm wondering if he will graffiti his jail cell as well. I hope the judge is art-minded and makes him paint over his great art.
