      Congrats on the explore... if only the advice was taken.

      It turns out about three-quarters of the people arrested downtown were riot tourists who weren't actually from Oakland. I'd say Oakland did pretty OK, considering.

      @ arlette, i agree!
      did you take any aftermath photos? i wanted to pass by broadway this morning but i felt lazy.
      by the way, nice angle on your shot.

      sometime after this was taken the marquee was changed to say "Oaklanders" instead of "citizens".

      Oh how I miss the GL Theatre. Used to live 1/2 a block away and catalog the marquee. Good shot. RIP Oscar Grant.

      @adfern2009 Nah, no photos -- my bus did go through downtown, and everyone on it started craning around to look at the broken glass, but I didn't feel much like gawking.

      @zensrokoner I have a real soft spot for that theater! I live a couple blocks away, and it's a great part of coming home, especially at night when it's all lit up.
