    the tree-sitters are down

    At long last, those brave tree sitters are climbing down. The view from Wurster's 9th floor reveals all the action, cherry-pickers, scaffolding, even a basket suspended from a crane among the devices used by the University police to get those guys out.

    On the ground, police are containing those hippies going wild on the street, revisiting Berkeley's history with such daring moves as blowing cigarette smoke into the cops' faces. Man, 2008 is not 1968, that's for sure.

    is that a tree or an atomic explosion on the side of that crow's nest?

    The view reveals something else, too. There are a heck of a lot more trees in Berkeley to sit in.


    I'm a fan of trees, too, but don't cry too hard for those oaks.

      Ha ha ha, oh those crazy hippies...

      I randomly got to see the hippies while on a recent drive thru town. I had forgotten about them and now am glad I got to see them before all the news hit!
