Berkeley balcony collapse update: 

     I just was over at Library Gardens and talked with a homeless person who heard the screams.  So sad.  But the saddest thing of all is the first word that was screamed out by the first young man who fell.   "Fuck!" 

    That's probably the first thing any of us would have said if we had suddenly felt a balcony collapsing beneath us four stories up.  http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories.  http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/jun/17/6-balcony-collapse-victims-berkeley-mourned-probe-/

     I also find it interesting that BlackRock, the same company that owns Library Gardens, is also trying to screw over our veterans. http://readersupportednews.org/opinion2/277-75/30769-wall-street-to-profit-off-cuts-to-veterans-pensions
