I hear this window got broken by beads after I took this photo — second year running. I sure wish broken windows were the worst news to come out of Endymion this year, but instead we had a truck plowing into the crowd just three blocks away from this scene. I had no clue what happened at the time; in fact I was contacted by concerned friends from around the world before I even learned of the incident. Bad news travels faster than ever.
