Little Italy Festa announces theme for 2013 chalk festival: "City Attorney Goldsmith is a ______."
First prize to whichever chalk artist comes up with the finest fill-in-the-blank.
The City Attorney's office suffered another public relations setback today over its attempt to prosecute a man who wrote anti-bank slogans in chalk outside some San Diego banks. "Assistant City Attorney Paige Hazard has already stated that 'chalk festivals may still be permitted,'" explains Little Italy Festa director Marc Azfalt. "So this year, our chalk festival is going to be held in support of chalk-based protestor Jeff Olson. City Attorney Goldsmith, who wants to make this case about graffiti and not free speech, is about to feel some sweet First Amendment action. Graffiti this, Jan!"
