The Value of Our Intelligence

"America's objective has always been to take what is ours. It has not changed, and it will not change; to take what does not belong to them...And, the reality of now is that the system is unfair, and it's not gonna be fair. This system is designed to exploit and oppress. That's the way this civilization is built...We're emotionally traumatized and reactive. We need to get past the emotional trauma stuff, and really understand the value of our intelligence."

No Sequel Anticipated

The Chronicle story about a squirrel that caused the East Bay power outage omits mention of what happened to the squirrel. We assume this is a one-off performance. No sequel anticipated.
