21 August 2012, Day 77

Strange how you can walk down a street time and again until one day noticing something that had been there all along. On my way from the movies to Trader Joe's on Diversey this afternoon, i came across this stenciled graffiti, which is apparently one of the series done a few years ago by CRO (Ray Noland), commemorating the fall of our most colorful former governor and current convicted felon, Rod Blagojevich. By recreating this pose from the movie Jailhouse Rock, this image references both Blago's admiration for Elvis Presley and his present legal difficulties.
