Happy Easter, Gerbil Nation!
The Angel of Death has passed us over -- the tomb is empty!
He is risen!

Good morning and happy Easter, friends.

Sauce is made, meatballs cooked, and the ham is in the oven. Reading up on the ‘troubles’ in Berkeley yesterday:


“Dozens of officers in riot gear monitored the volatile demonstrators and occasionally lined up to block the protesters from moving in certain directions or into the streets. For the most part, however, they kept their distance — an approach local departments have utilized recently to keep heated situations from exploding into riots.” Great strategy -- how’d that work out?

1. Several fights broke out even before the noon start of the pro-Trump rally, and multiple people fired pepper spray into the crowd.
2. The pro-Trump demonstrators stayed in the park, where people in the opposing groups threw soda cans, fruit, shoes, bottles and what appeared to be fireworks
3. Injured people — many holding ice packs to their faces or flushing pepper spray from their eyes with milk
4. At one point, hundreds of pro- and anti-Trump demonstrators marched up Center Street toward Shattuck Avenue, leaving bloody and bruised participants in their wake.
5. Ben Bergquam of Fresno emerged from the crowd with blood streaming down his face. He held a crumpled “Stop Liberal Intolerance” sign in his hand.
6. Nearby, others gathered around a man who was lying in the grass, blood flowing from his head.

Yes, good job. Sound strategy.
