KHOU: Graffiti still a problem in Houston

After Thanksgiving, KHOU-11 ran another of their stories on Houston's ongoing graffiti problem.

The local media -- especially the TV stations -- regularly run these stories, after which some mayoral promise to "get tough" on graffiti usually emerges (usually without any followup action).

This story had a useful reminder:

Grafitti is not a new problem in Houston, but some see it as a growing problem lately.

In the past, the city’s grafitti abatement division took on the task of eradicating graffiti, but that division no longer exists.

Houston requires home and business owners to clean up graffiti on private property.

The Mayor's big initiative to deal with the problem by forcing cleanup onto the victims seems not to have solved the problem. Who could have guessed?
