    TRACY — One man was booked on a civil rights violation and hate crime enhancement, and another on suspicion of vandalism, after police found racist graffiti on a Tracy office building Saturday night. Police initally were called to Lowell Avenue and Tracy Boulevard on a report of two men fighting, said Sgt. Tony Sheneman. When they responded, officers found a substantial amount of freshly scrawled graffiti on the back of a dentist's office and on a nearby vehicle. The graffiti was derogatory toward African Americans and Jews, Sheneman said. One of the men in the fight, 20-year-old Jacob Hicks of...

    What do you do if you're a street artist turned marketing phenom who uses other people's images when someone uses one of your designs? If you're Shepard Fairey, apparently, you call your lawyers. Fairey, of Obama HOPE poster fame, is defending himself against charges he infringed on an Associated Press copyrighted photo in making the poster. He's also been criticized by artists for using others' work without attribution. His lawyers claim in the AP case that he is protected by fair use provisions of the copyright law. It turns out, however, that the activist art appropriator is a wee bit...

    Vandals spray-painted gang-related messages across an area of Georgetown overnight, leaving an elementary school, a community center, a park and close to a dozen other buildings damaged. Residents woke this morning to find royal blue graffiti, most reading "Crips 4 life" or "Crips" in reference to the notorious gang, on buildings from East 14th Street to East 19th Street in the neighborhood surrounding San Jose Park south of U.S. 29. Portions of the walls of Annie Purl Elementary School, the Getsemani Community Center and buildings at the playground in the park were spray-painted. Some of the messages were as large...

    Pink Panther movie trailer | 5/20/05 | Paul Rivers
    O.K. I've recovered slightly from the marathon of 3 viewings of the new, and, BTW, great new movie Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. I saw something during the previews that concerns me. It was subtle, but it was up there long enough for me to see it. The movie is the upcoming Steve Martin movie The Pink Panther. The trailer is viewable by clicking here. It looks very funny. In one scene, (and I'm not sure the trailer listed above is the same one I saw in the theater, I'm at work and can't get it through...

    A pair of dim-witted graffiti vandals who videotaped their escapades were caught in the act by cops who only had to hit the rewind button to see them defacing a North End statue earlier this week, police said. ``Who does this? Where do these kids come from?'' resident Tony Guarino said after seeing the vandalism to the Christopher Columbus statue Thursday morning. ``Anything that's nice, they ruin it.'' Police believe the vandalism was inflicted by Waleed Zaiter of Randolph and George Cox of Jamaica Plain, who were busted with Krylon cans in hand during an ill-advised video shoot early yesterday....

"The longer the war goes on and the higher the number of American casualties there, I think probably...
