Under the Bart Tracks

I walk to work every morning from the train station. I love public transportation, though that is a story for another post, but one of my favorite things about the Bay Area is the type of graffiti we get. This guy (girl? maybe, but my handwriting analysis is on guy) uses the pilings under the Bart tracks for his primary canvas. And I believe he also may be able to actually interpret the news…

For some background on this particular subject you may want to look here for a general chrono-overview or here for another. The history of puppet regimes is long and not that varied. The tradition of burying it in out Huxley-esque overabundance of drivel-termed-news is a convenient way to render the situation insignificant if even in existence. Regardless of one’s political views, it would be in the best interest of us all to at least consider the multiple motives that underlie our actions in other countries. If for no other reason than the simple fact that we would *never* allow this kind of thing to be carried out in our country by foreign governments.

And I am definitely going to use the photos in class…
