Most Literate City in America

I saw this graffiti on the side of a bridge right between New Brighton and Arden Hills, going northbound on 35W.


Yep, it says “CAVEAT EMPTOR.” That’s Latin! It means “buyer beware.” This would be a poignant piece of graffiti to paint on the side of a bridge in Minnesota, as bridges are built by the government, who gets their money from you, the tax payer. Buyer beware! These bridges suck! Except it was painted on a railroad bridge.

    A warning against expanding light rail, no doubt.

    I have noticed that particular message, too, and wonder what it meant.

    That’s the second decent piece of graffiti I’ve seen in Minneapolis this year. The first was during the RNC, and was on the Grain Belt sign. It said "Get Out Phascists."
