But according to the Herald, there seems to be a burgeoning up-and-coming crop riding the coattails of Mass graf legends who are now quasi-legit and/or hiding out along the North Shore. And as expected, they're being prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, which extends pretty far for writers around here.

This Saturday (flier below), organizers with the Margaret Fuller House and Area 44 Peace are showing work by some of the nicest cats in the region at Clement Morgan Park in Cambridge, for a very special graf installment of Arts in the Park.
