I was pretty pissed off. [. . .] There are some things that should be sacred. Millennium Park and The Bean have been an important, iconic part of who we are as Chicago from the time that park opened and The Bean was first opened up as an icon in our city. It is unbelievably unacceptable for people to be defacing something like that.
It’s unacceptable wherever it is. [. . .] But clearly they chose this area to make a big statement. But it’s not acceptable anywhere. It’s not acceptable anywhere in the city. In my neighborhood, Logan Square, we have gang graffiti. I had my garage tagged. It’s not acceptable. People should have a decent quality of life all over the city.
