In light of the recent Kosovar declaration of independence, I have a local observation. Roslindale is home to a large Albanian community, including many Kosovar Albanians, who can be found each morning at several local coffee shops. The graffiti, “KLA,” can be found on the wall of the former Friendly Ice Cream on Centre Street in West Roxbury. My guess is that this tag refers to the Kosovo Liberation Army.
