First she was buoyantly up in a "dangerous" People's Park tree protesting "Everything," but now she's at Highland Hospital with a broken back, ending an eight-day protest which was a protest-in-progress.

Her last fall from the tree was her second. She fell in her second day in the tree and was caught in the arms of a friend before she hit the ground. "Moon Shadow," who was first up, last Monday, reportedly took a plunge when—out on a limb—he helped attach a protest banner.

Amy Blue, her latest name,joined Moon Shadow Friday in a "love tree" at the North east corner of People's Park near a crowded Haste St. walkway. The two met a year ago, while fellow "travelers" on the road. The attractive pair have put a new face on a tired tree-sit which ran out of steam and died in January when the previous tree-sitter, Matt Dodt, 53, was charged with attempted murder. Those charges were reduced and later dropped.


People's Park tree-sit site, Monday. Sentiments of a new generation of protesters, center; Set-in-stone "memorial" trash receptacle to right was installed after last tree-sit. Running Wolf's thoughts on the matter are to left of center.

“Moonshadow”? “Peace and Love”?

Am I in a time warp, and now back in 1967?

Among them "stupid", and now "gimpy" has been bestowed upon her highness (or not-so-highness, if you prefer).

They have no idea what reality is.
They have absolutely zero life skills.
And in their demented little worlds, products and goods are evil while nature and everything in it is ‘good’.

Yet look at how trashed they left the area there..

Occupy everything? If she thinks she can be omnipresent, then why bother climbing up in the tree. She’s already there. And everywhere else.

As for those Ohlone Indians, do they really want it back now?

Did we really need a two page excerpt about a dingbat (or is that moonbat) falling out of a tree in San Fransicko? I think a paragraph would have sufficed.

I can’t believe I’m making that complaint. Folks normally don’t post long enough excerpts for my taste.

I’m sure she has plenty of insurance so the few remaining taxpayers of California won’t have to pay her medical bills. Better yet, she should just sue the city of Berkeley. Just because.

Don’t forget that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. It’s likely that their parents were hippy freaks, too, or at least mentally ill to some degree or another like them!

The angel, who called herself Amy Blue ("I have many names," she said),

Two observations: 1) "Dingus" would be an appropriate name;

2) Satan said of himself that "my name is Legion ..." Which, translated, means, "I have many names ..."
