Art teacher Bruce Kanegai received the greatest compliment from one of his students not too long ago. She said he taught her mother 20 years ago at Simi Valley High School, and she considers him the best teacher she ever had. "That's what it's all about," Kanegai said.

Perched on gray boulders that seem to jut out of the Santa Monica Freeway, the Jeep Wrangler looks as if it is about to thunder off the side of an old garment warehouse in Downtown Los Angeles, flattening oncoming cars. The ad, part of a nationwide trend in wall murals featuring hamburgers a giant would choke on, bottles of beer that would flood a stadium and jeans that would blanket a small town, is whipping up a controversy just as colossal.
