Check out this BEAUTIFUL video elegy by Dean Bog about the Four Mile Run neighborhood and their campaign to ensure public money goes to community transportation priorities, rather than the Mon-Oakland Connector roadway!

"The Run is a great place to raise your kids. This is the perfect family-oriented place. All you guys who stood downtown and fought for a cause so that the highway wouldn't run through here - I mean they're still trying to do it now.
