He makes several messy brushstrokes on the canvas, but Alan finds it to be very expressive. How can Oscar make the painting messier? He observes Maria squeezing a squeeze bottle too hard and mustard splattering onto her sandwich, making a mess. This gives Oscar the idea to use squeeze bottles for his painting. He squirts a few splats of paint onto the canvas. Leela admires the painting and says it reminds her of fireworks. Oscar is now frustrated because his painting is not making anyone angry. He realizes that the paint colors are too nice. With Abby's help, Oscar notices a spot on the painting where the blue and yellow paint mixed together, creating a grouchy green color. Oscar squirts blue, yellow, and a little bit of red paint onto his palette and mixes them together. The paint turns into a dirty brownish green grouchy color. He makes a big batch of it and decides that rather than making little splatters with the squeeze bottles, he is going to use a different paint tool that has enough force to make a huge splat. He brings in his pet elephant, Fluffy. Fluffy blows on the pile of paint and creates a gigantic splat on the canvas. Everyone comes by and thinks the painting looks amazing. Oscar is now angrier than he's ever been. He didn't make anyone angry with his painting. Abby points out that he did make one person angry - himself!

    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2420] March 8, 2013 Guest Host: Joshua Johnson.
    News panel:
    SANTA CRUZ POLICE OFFICERS - From across California, thousands mourned the murders of two Santa Cruz police officers killed during a routine investigation. The long and troubled criminal history of the killer raises questions about the criminal justice system.
    DOW JONES HIGH - The Dow Jones hit a twelve-year record high this week. Is it a temporary uptick or does it suggest a broader economic recovery? With new data out on job growth, how are Bay Area companies doing?
    DEVIL'S SLIDE - Commuters driving the coastal route between Santa Cruz and San Francisco can expect a different view next month. A dangerous stretch of Highway-1, known as Devil's Slide, will soon be re-routed away from the steep cliffs to new state-of-the-art mile-long tunnels.
    Guests: Martha Mendoza, Associated Press; Tom Vacar, KTVU; Paul Rogers, San Jose Mercury News and KQED.
    URBAN PLANNING: STUART COHEN - As we look to the future, Bay Area urban planners are scrambling for ideas on how to handle the projected increase in population. Over the last 40 years, California's sprawling growth and dependence on cars has taken its toll. According to a recent Census Bureau report, the region is home to the most "mega-commuters" in the country. These are people who spend at least 90 minutes and drive over 50 miles to get to work. Families, particularly those who can least afford it, are spending more and more of their time and income just getting where they need to go. Stuart Cohen, recipient of a 2013 James Irvine Foundation Leadership Award, believes that smarter regional planning can reverse these trends. As a founder and executive director of the nonprofit TransForm, he is leading an effort to revitalize local communities into diverse, vibrant places where more people walk, bike and take world-class public transit.
