Ahhhh, another day in the land of fruits and nuts. I love California for this. We don't just protest, we us it as an excuse to show off our weirdness. Their was a public hearing on a proposed toll road that would be built right through a state park, potentially ruining a unique camping area as well as destroying the peace at a popular surf spot called trestles. The regular cast of union workers(who were paid to be there) and suits turned out in favor and a colorful cast of surfers, environmentalists and just plain old locals turned out in opposition. If the 60's were a hot time for protests on equal rights, the war and peace and love, the 2000's I fell will be the same for the environment.
