Merciful Crocodile. Merciful God.

The spillway graffiti has taken an ugly turn. In big blue and gold lettering, stand reminders of common personal failures.

“You've let your ten-year-old self down.”

“Thank god mom isn't here to see this.”

“Compromise or humiliation?”

“None of them loved you.”

That last one has a thorny rose tangled through it. And just below it is a giant mouth with dice for teeth.

Due to Tea Party cut backs, the county can't afford any beige paint thick enough to completely cover it.
