Today is the first anniversary of the murder of Yeardley Love and both sides of the bridge are painted in her memory:
And on the east side:
I find it interesting that when I start typing “year” into a Google search box, the first result is Yeardley Love:
This is probably related to the fact that Google knows my location based on my IP address, so I wonder if this is true in other areas away from Charlottesville (but I don’t feel like going to the trouble of masking my IP). Also, I noticed there is a Wikipedia page related to the murder. Is this weird? Is there a Wikipedia page for every murder case in the nation? Probably not.

Update: Later on in the day there was a local news crew on the scene, with the breaking news that the bridge was painted. In the online story they note:
Some students walking by have stopped and paused for a minute, others have taken pictures.
Me?? Maybe, but I did see other people take pictures, as they were with the American flag/Bin Laden painting the day before.
