Steve Jobs Memorial
I know this is getting old hat, but:
I didn't even know there was an Apple store in our mall until I went there this morning. Photos show the big windows on either side of the main entrance. Lots of sticky notes, some flowers, a real apple with a bit out of it ....
A bit like the roadside memorials you see around--which I think are a kind of unofficial religious observance. There was a murder just outside a local Tim Horton's--a verbal altercation started inside, and turned into a stabbing just outside the restaurant. A memorial, presumably entirely spontaneous, grew up right at the bottom of the Tim Horton's sign, which was also at a point where people in the drive through are forced to turn. Likely to be seen by a lot of people.
