Guess I'm home. On my jog this morning, I saw that local activists had created a reminder that one year ago, a young man named Oscar Grant was shot in the back and killed by a BART police officer while the officer was trying to restrain him. The event was captured on several cell phone videos -- the officer resigned and will go on trial for murder sometime this year.
The graphic layout on Bernal Hill strikes me as a pretty good example of the populist billboard genre. This sort of thing is tough to do -- I know, I've been part of a few such efforts.
