Can you explain those designs on the new center divider along the Pasadena Freeway? I drive by them every day, and they look like smiles and frowns.

    Lie back on the shrink’s couch and tell us more. Those aren’t smiles and frowns. The $17 million concrete barrier is stamped with stylized evocations of the bridges that cross the freeway, which is once again going by its original name, the Arroyo Seco Parkway. The sketches repeat as you roll past. You’d do better analyzing your emotional state by wearing that 1970s accessory, the mood ring.
