Homeowner writes: "My garage door has been tagged by a 'gay tagger.' My white garage door has some moronic red spray painted 'tag' as these 'artists' like to think of themselves. I can't even make out the tag because the 'flamboyant' artist used such artistic script, clearly done by a gay degenerate idiot with nothing better to do than walk around with a can of red spray paint and mess up my garage door." --Jared Jacang Maher
