Affinia Manhattan, Room 1418, New York, New York

On April 11th, a 70-year-old man from Chestertown, a town near me in the Adirondacks, was arrested for writing graffiti on an overpass on Route 9L. (I don't even know where Route 9L--one of the many Routes 9--is.)

Kenneth C. Hopper spraypainted the word "rowlow" onto the Warren County Bike Trail overpass just before 3 p.m. Hopper, who is a doctor of medicine, said that he thought the word was "intriguing" but didn't know what it meant.

Although we might question the judgment of this man, he is a friend to visual poets for his graffiti art and a friend to pwoermdists for his pwoermd. I wonder who told him it was International Pwoermd Writing Month.
