Some Guy Climbs a Tree. Berkeley Indulges Him.

You know, you can learn some really interesting things when you bother to read the Berkeley Daily Planet. Take this story, which appeared yesterday. Apparently, UC Berkeley arborists took a look at three trees on People’s Park, decided they were structurally damaged and likely to fall and maybe hurt someone, and decided to cut them down. Enter Zachary Runningwolf, Berkeley’s biggest drama queen, to the rescue! Up one of the trees goes our own little Crazy Horse, where he apparently intended to stay just like he did during the Memorial Stadium saga. UC Berkeley officials stared at him for a few hours, then sent him a note promising not to cut down the trees during the holiday season, if only he’d be a good boy and come down. So he did! And everyone’s happy! ‘Tis the season, we guess.
