SF unrest

As the protesters gathered at Justin Herman Plaza[Wiki] this morning, the police were parked in front of Noah's Bagels[Wiki], getting fed. No fewer than 7 TV trucks parked on the concrete there, apparently they were expecting more than the 3 or 4 that were still there when I went by on Friday evening. And there was also a reasonable amount of air traffic already, which means we're probably in for the drone of hovering helicopters again today. Probably be a bunch of cute young female high school students milling around outside the justice building filling out forms come lunchtime.

This morning there was a long line of protesters slowly walking single file down the sidewalk on Market Street. Frank Chu was keeping pace beside them. I really really wanted to find a place to juxtapose the two, but couldn't.

For those of you unfamiliar with Frank Chu, a Google search is probably the best place to start.

8 or 9 TV trucks last night, 4 this morning. Although I came by very early this morning. Also had few helicopters yesterday, hopefully the weather will keep the choppers at bay this A.M. too.
