I went to the city's Web site a few minutes ago in search of something when I stumbled across this in the "Latest News & Announcements ... " section: "Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert, Deputy Mayor Pro-Tem Dwaine R. Caraway, Rickey Smiley, KBFB 97.9 The Beat, The City of Dallas, Out The Box Entertainment and the MLK, Jr. Family Clinic announce first 'Hip Hop for HIV” Concert.'" Then I clicked on the item and came across the city's official press release, which is where I saw the logo pictured above. Which gave a few of us at Unfair Park HQ a contest idea: How many things can you find that are wrong and/or disturbing and/or disturbingly wrong with said image? Go. --Robert Wilonsky
