On my way home today I spotted this amazing image at Sansome & Sacramento Street near a favorite FiDi coffee-&-bagel spot i hit up in the mornings. The Guy Fawkes mask, known more widely in the US as the one in "V for Vendetta," is a remarkable appropriation especially here with the flag and united letters extolling the primacy of the 99% of us who are not rich, not winning this game, and not privy to the insider trading that is our modern economy. But i digress. It's a potent, unnerving image that defines for me the season, The American Fall.
