The Berkeley city councils recent despicable action towards serving military persons, reminiscent of the ignorant behavior during Vietnam era, is something I WILL NOT tolerate! I have been with SETI for many years and have done much work. Until the people of berkeley decide to act humanely towards those protecting them, I will no longer associate with SETI, or anything else associated with Berkeley, and will urge all my friends to do likewise.

I am ashamed of the people of Berkeley who have allowed this to happen.

Cafe threads don't belong in Q&A.

What has the City Berkeley to do with the University of California in Berkeley ? - Nothing. - So your argumentation is totaly wrong.

Now you know how I've been feeling about some of my fellow americans and their actions... ;)

(BTW - Does the military use macintosh computers?)
It may not be 1984 but George Orwell sure did see the future . . .
