It seems the whiniest Hamtrackans have won: "Death Of Street Art," SEVER's shit storm-inducing controversial mural at Goodson and Joseph Campau, is being covered up and replaced with something new. Only this time, it's not by a world-famous artist.

What's the replacement? According to our tipster, "It will be a stylized coat of arms, with figural icons representing each of the countries that make up Hamtramck." That sounds pleasantly pandering. What do you think, readers?
