Ok your probably wondering why I would post such a picture.

Go back and take a look at it.

Do you see that light yellow chain attached to the handrail.

At one point in time not all that far away that simple chain and yellow paint was all that was needed to keep people out from an area that was too sensitive or dangerous for most people to be in.
Now take a look at the chain link fence.

To me that says more about our society today than any crime report on TV.

Fire on I-5

Posted by Fritoy on July 10, 2008

Well more like next to it.
So here I was writing the post below when I hear a bang thinking it was some jerk setting off the last of his Fourth of July fireworks. I did not give it any more thought, then the smoke came rolling in through the open windows. (enjoying that early summer global warming)

I grabbed my shoes, flashlight and my camera I went off to see where it was coming from and forgot my phone.

I did regret not bringing my phone but by the time I had remembered it I had already heard  a siren or two amd seen several people near by.

It turns out to be a small brush fire but there is a apartment building and a home within a 100 feet or so.

At this point the fire was out and they were just doing mop up.

One thing I did find interesting is one of the apartment dwellers said he heard three blasts that sounded like a shotgun.

May Day Protest Part II

Posted by Fritoy on May 4, 2008

First some flags.

The Mexico flag here just disappeared before they came back too the TV crews.

Now that we know how they feel about flags we move on to our own favorite.
Finding Che.

Ok Now that Che has been spotted we can move on too more important things like campaign signs.


Chris Rich
If I had a choice, The guy on the left would not be in public with my name. (just saying)

Amanda Fritz

And lastly
The One The Only…

One lonely sign.
Jim Bissonnette showed up to chat with anyone who would listen.
I didn’t take any photos of him, didn’t see any reason too heck I didn’t even know he was running for something.


Puppets, Who can have a protest without Puppets!

I almost forgot Labor unions.

Some over head shots.

I was some what disappointed in the turnout for this protest. I was sure more of the socialists swine would have been there.

I  forgot the 911 Truthers

All in all I was some what surprised not to see the Ron Paul Bots around.
