Last weekend's West Coast Walk for Life

I had thought about going up for last Saturday's Walk for Life in San Francisco, but after listening to an organizer's warnings about the vicious reception the march would probably get in that bastion of tolerance and openness to ideas, I distrusted my ability to stay cool in the face of it. Today I found this site (h/t: The Cafeteria is Closed) with plenty of photos and even some video. In retrospect, I wish I had taken part. The march discipline appears to have been great, the opposition mostly just nasty and ridiculous, and the police out in force and determined to protect the marchers' safety and the right of the march to go forward without being blocked or interfered with.
