I visited again the next day and the graffiti was white-washed---a quick response to be certain. I've seen similar appearances and clean-ups on the bridges around the lake.

I hope that we're doing as much to prevent the occurrences as we are to clean them up---and I do not necessarily mean locking down the public spaces and enforcing curfews.
