Meeh, that photo caption is just a tad over the top. You are one crazy woman!

Anon 5:18 AM, well okay, "over the top" is sometimes the intent of photos and captions. (My choice).

This caption relates the fear of future Bay Area growth and congestion as expressed by David Price (Palo Alto Daily Editor) in his 39:54 minute interview with Barbara Simpson, KGO radio.

The fear of a congested Bay Area future David Price expresses may also be a bit "over the top", but it may be a future the Bay Area cannot avoid.
