He Should Have Used a Power Washer Instead

2005_05_biglie.jpgFinally someone did what we've all been thinking of doing. Last night at about 11:30pm Victor Gonzalez biked into the underpass and wrote "BIG LIE" in black shoe polish over top of the salt stain that some say looked like the Virgin Mary. And then because he defaced the wall, authorities had to paint over it.

Gonzalez was arrested and charged with criminal damage to state property but Chicagoist would like to thank him. He definately took one for the team but maybe this will finally put an end to the madness.
