Today we were walking along Wilshire Blvd, near La Jolla in the Mid-Wilshire district, and noticed this billboard for Time Magazine looming above us. The red silhouette of a Time magazine cover swings between photos of John Kerry and George W. Bush like a pendulum. One moment George's face is on the cover and the next moment it's Kerry's turn to become the "Face of Time."

The Halloween season has us thinking about Poe so we we've nicknamed the billboard "The Pit and The Pendulum."

Thanks to Scott Garner for the photo.
