Media frenzy

Redwood City, California

When word got out that the Scott Peterson trial was going to be moved to this city, news
corporations fought for the best parking places. The city spent $270,000 just to set up
for journalists several months ago. The city made 16 concrete spaces available near the
courthouse, each 10 foot by 15 foot, for $51,000 each (rent it all for just $816,000!).
The left picture is of a nearby business who would rent a single parking space for a
satellite truck plus a deluxe office suite for about $3,000 a month. Look, they even
rented the roof! Crazy. The right picture is where the lawyers would appear after the
day's activities.

Phooner: me. Photo idea: mine.
