Any excuse to party!

Wicked Local Brookline offers up the truly odd story of "Russ Oleum" (not his real name), a guy who just can't stand graffiti. He's made a career out of removing tags and even keeps a toolkit in his car. (In case you want to join the fight, check out his very thorough website.) Wicked Local says that when one of the area's biggest offenders was nabbed (involving some kind of ruse involving a dead bunny), "Oleum" heard the news and "uncorked a bottle of champagne." Hey, any reason for a party! [Wicked Local]
