Rest in Paradise to those who have lost their lives surviving through the times, trials, and tribulations of living in the ghettos of the world. I pray that whatever peace can be attained in a situation like this will be granted to the families affected and impacted by said violence. While Oscar Grant, Andrew Moppin, Young Gary, Jody Woodfox, Michael Chau, Julio Paredes, Sean Bell, Adolph Grimes, Acorn Peters, Idriss Stelly, and countless others are gone, we are here, to make sure future generations aren't treated as we were and are. Show compassion in everyday acts, and kindness at every turn.

I live in the East Bay. Before moving here I lived in Hattiesburg, MS. Although this might seem to be an extreme lifestyle change, I have to say that, at least in terms of the movie offerings around me there is not much difference.
What is showing today (December 18, 2010) in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties in the big movie multiplexes is pretty much the same thing that is showing in Hattiesburg, MS.
Yes, I know, I could get on the BART and go into San Francisco for more variety. I also could go to the smaller movie venues in my area and hope that the movie with good reviews I want to see is not in the small attic theater and that it is possible to find parking within a mile of the building where the movie is being shown.
I just wish that the people running the big movie houses in my general area had just a tiny bit more creativity and would provide something different for people who are bored with Hollywood sausage factory movies and also prefer a modern movie theater experience.
