Misleading statements about Forest Services positionEdit

@Rstats8108:,

A portion of the prose read "technical report by the United States Forest Service credits UGA...." This is misleading. The disclaimer on the source reads

"Papers were provided in camera-ready form for printing by the authors, who are
therefore responsible for the content and accuracy. Opinions expressed may not
necessarily reflect the position of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
The use of trade, firm, or corporation names in this publication is for the information
and convenience of the reader. Such use does not constitute an official endorsement
or approval by the U.S. Department of Agriculture of any product or service to the
exclusion of others that may be suitable." 

So the government agency is NOT taking a position on this.

"United Graffiti Artists (UGA) and Nation of Graffiti Artists (NOGA), marked the first attempts to organize and legitimize writers as artists.
The UGA and NOGA helped young writers by providing studio space and art
materials and sponsoring showings of paintings." 

This is according to a portion of contents authored by HENRY CHALFANT, a sculptor, the author of Spraycan Art, and lives in New York.
