original or crispy

Sunday morning I somehow ended up in San Francisco, and when I spotted a vacant parking spot near the corner of Taylor and Pacific I grabbed it and walked down the steep hill to Chinatown.   I managed to snag this photo, and I think I'll eventually crop it into a square, but I thought it was kind of interesting. --Looks like Colonel Saunders isn't the only one who offers both original recipe and crispy...

Hi Henri,

Yes, as your intrepid reporter, I'll be there with "bells on" tomorrow... I just looked at the route, and if I get there early enough I can probably even find a free place to park all day, but I'll end up walking quite a distance to where the route ends (and where the the protests begin).

The "officials" are very concerned about the protesters -- they even announced air-space restrictions over the route for aircraft other than the "police".

I wouldn't be surprised if the cops are itching to crack a few skulls if the demonstrations get even the slightest bit out of hand.   I'd rather not come home with pictures of bloody protesters, but it is entirely possible...

Yesterday (Monday) some brave (and extremely wreckless) protesters climbed some of the cables on the Golden Gate Bridge and spread their banners.   One of them got tangled and stuck in the banner and bridge workers had to go up and cut him down.   I think the penalty for doing that is six months in jail and a fine, so you've got to know that the protesters are really serious...

See you over at Web-Pix, Henri...

Don and Kitty

Yeah, Don, be careful. The Police are going to expect the worse after the demonstrations in Paris, 2 days ago, and we all know that revved up cops + revved up demonstrators never make for a good combination, so watch out.

The Chronicle said today there were 500 protestors already at the UN Plaza, today, a day early.

Protest aside, I bet those chickens are better than Col. Sanders.
