Graffiti

In New York -- whose subway trains in particular have been ''tattooed'' with an energy to put our own rude practitioners to shame -- not an inch of free space is spared except that of advertisements . Even the most chronically dispossessed appear prepared to endorse the legitimacy of the ''haves.''

Gilbert Adair (1944-?) American author, film critic, and journalist.

Montaigne (1533-1592) French philosopher and essayist.
