The day after.

Is there anyone out there?

Anyone at all?

I hear it looks a little like Yasgur's farm.

Estimates are coming in at $7.5 million to repair damages caused by protesters/attendees.

Fucking liberals.

Looks well trodden, but better than my lawn at home looks after the brutal drought we had. It's nothing a couple of fall showers and the usual over-attention and manicuring won't remedy.

But why take my first-hand analysis when you can have Meade's trademark hearsay?

Was that your pickup line that sealed the deal.

Come on, bdog. This is beneath you. A lawn, trod upon, for half a day? STOP THE PRESSES!

My God, it was horrible, I couldn't believe it. The images will live with me until the day I die, they are etched into my psyche.... The carnage, the dead burnt mutilated bodies, trees ripped out by their roots, cars set on fire, windows smashed, old ladies crying out in anguish as they were trampled by the mobs, children ripped from their mother's clutches and tossed screaming onto the burning ruins...

I mean, it's fucked up bad. I think they are going to have to tear it all down, just lop the top of the hill right off, Bascom Hall and all, and start over.

Did they use some of that marble-sucking tape again?

In case anyone is sincerely curious, Bascom Hill barely looks trodden. If you didn't know what happened yesterday you can't tell by how "fucked up" the hill is.

Oh and incidentally and on a totally different subject, they've surrounded that block where Brothers used to be with temp fencing which means those buildings probably won't be there long.

If you want to take one last look at all that peeling paint, this weekend would be the time to do it.

Bdog is so low he could play handball against the curb. He's so low he'd have to stand on his tiptoes to touch the belly of a snake. He's so low he'd have to go up just to go down. He's so low there isn't even a blues song about how low he is.

He's that low.

Hey, that's not Bascom Hill! There are no palm trees.
