Misspelled Mural Update

Well, it looks like Maria Alquilar has changed her mind again and will return to Livermore to fix the spelling errors in her mosaic. Apparently city officials assured her that she would be "safe" while she made the fixes (I guess they were afraid spelling vigilantes would be out for blood??).

"People have their First Amendment rights," Jim Piper, Livermore's assistant city manager, is quoted as saying in the Chronicle story. "But people are not allowed to assault others."

They're not?? What kind of police state are they running over there in Livermore?
