Interesting. For the first time ever I noticed a graffiti-covered commuter rail car lumbering by my house (the Northeast Corridor tracks are at the end of my street). It was so unusual for me to see the graffiti on the T's rolling stock that I immediately took notice. Wonder if there's a connection with the "convention"
