Atlanta Journal-Constitution - November 08, 2008
In Candler Park, cars whiz by a giant wooden cut-out of President-elect Barack Obama, who dominates a leafy front yard with his passionate "Yes We Can" mantra. In Inman Park, a childlike hand-painted sign converts the letters in Obama's name into a sunflower, a house and a rocket ship. . . .GEORGIA TECH industrial design graduate student Shelton Davis couldn't afford to donate money to the Obama campaign.
