Tim Myers: A few more headstones and Ryan King wins

In Pat Conroy's semi-autobiographical book and film "Conrack," the protaganist shouts from a truck in the whitest neighborhood of Buelah, South Carolina, that "a mere 20 more headstones in the graveyard of every city in the nation will resolve the problem of overt racism."

A short time later, the man's vehicle was located (parked) at Sierra Highway and Newhall Avenue.
