I lived in Berkeley for almost three years, and it is a very strange place. While I was there, the city council voted that Tinky Winky, of the children's show Teletubbies
, could be any sexual orientation he wanted. They also voted that people who have pets are not owners
, and should be referred to as caretakers
That's fine and all, but does a city council need to vote on that?
People in the city were also protesting one day, and they marched through the streets with torches... the police had to stop them and break it up... fire and mob mentality
are not a good combination!
And if you want to see a bunch of naked people on bicycles and a bunch of women pretended to give birth by squatting and having dolls drop out of their shirts, followed by a small army of Kingons, go to the "How Berkeley Can You Be?" parade. http://www.zombietime.com/how_berkeley_can_you_be/

Nothing coming out of Berkeley surprises me any more.
