Architecture columnist John Conti's Living-section critique of the egoistic practice of abusing Pittsburgh landmark buildings with corporate logos, “Downtown landmarks shouldn't be tagged by corporate graffiti artists” (July 14 and, is spot on in my view. Perhaps the herd will follow the first to show leadership by pulling down the defacements.

I saw a movie recently shot in Pittsburgh and was proud of the architecturally attractive lines. One can only imagine how the director had to spend hours finding panoramic views that weren't interrupted with the corporate blight scrawled on so many building facades.

Count me among those interested in signing off.
