    All good things must come to an end sometime. As so it was with one of the largest California protests since the 1960s, although I don't think these folks got as much sex in their encampment as the previous generation did at Haight and Ashbury up in San Francisco. Last evening the LAPD set up a central command center at the Dodger stadium parking lot (think Dodger CentCom minus Vin Scully) with about 300 buses to transport every police officer they could muster; guys with SWAT weapons to appropriately shock and awe, guys with Hazmat aliens suits in case any of the protesters were extra-terrestrials, you name it.

    And then in the wee hours of the morning they moved in: latimesblogs.com

    I'll really miss that guy up in the tree at city hall.

    I hope they keep up the fight for people's right to camp in public spaces.

    I know I've had to do that sometimes. Think of all those people in Japan displaced by the fallout and living in cardboard boxes in Tokyo!
