My dad visited the Occupy protesters in Oakland, California on Sunday, before they cleared out. This was my favorite part of his report:
I did pick up one poetic gem yesterday. A large oak tree on the side of the encampment was roped off, with a nice sign that said to keep out in order to take care of the tree. A hand scrawled sign hanging on the fence stated, "An oak tree is just a nut that decided to hold its ground." I like that.
I wrote back to him: On behalf of nuts everywhere, thanks for sharing that quote!
