Another Day, Another Protest

Weird day. Much to say about it! Here are some pix.

I was glad to see my regular parking spot was available, considering all the hoopla!

View from my office of the plaza where the torch was supposed to end up.

Crowd at the ferry terminal clock tower.

Close-up of protesters. They don't look that scary!

Yeah, I did get to see the torch. On streaming video.

ps--I did tell you all about the cats right? They're still here . . .

torch song tragedy

It's so weird (but cool) to have my commute to work directly affected by the Freedom Torch and the Olympic Torch.

Today I couldn't cut through Civic Center plaza like I usually do because of the Freedom Torch. A small price to pay for freedom.

Tomorrow we are being advised to work at home because the Olympic Torch (and any incidental protests) are scheduled to get their 15 minutes of Pacific Coast fame mere yards from my office.

Oh yeah. I'm really going to work from home then!
