The World's Laziest Journalist has learned a thing or two about photo editing and we realize that the photos taken early on May 1 st in Oakland aren't strong candidates for winning any of the press photographer clip contests for this month, but after putting in time to get to the event, get images, edit them, and then get to the Public Library to post them, we figured:   "What the heck, they are better than no images at all."
