And here’s the fix – the Replace Color command’s saturation slider:
At first I though this billboard had something to do with the recent ill-starred Salesforce.com Hackathon.
Then I thought it was a beef from a laid-off salesperson.

A method for inducing cats to exercise consists of directing a beam of invisible light produced by a hand-held laser apparatus onto the floor or wall or other opaque surface in the vicinity of the cat, then moving the laser so as to cause the bright pattern of light to move in an irregular way fascinating to cats, and to any other animal with a chase instinct.”

Artist Ann Sherry is fortunate to get a five-figure commission for anything, so I’m not sure why she’s so perpetually cranky.
It’s not smart to put up images of authority figures (you know, people in military of police uniforms) in a sort of wild part of town
I don’t know, maybe this was a bad idea from the start?
I don’t know, maybe San Francisco government has lots of bad ideas, you know, from the start?
What can we learn from this episode?
As seen at City Hall:
Here’s highly ebullient:
And here’s ebullient (nominal), a third of a second later:
And here’s the “I don’t know what you’re talking about” look, the “you’re not a member of the City Family, are you” look, a third of a second after that:
