About two blocks away from the book sale and about two hours after we bought the books, Occupy San Francisco made the news with some protest activity at a nearby branch of the Wells Fargo Bank.   We missed the chance to cover that chapter of the history of the Occupy Movement, but thanks to the material we gathered leading to information about a Berkeley student, the WWI ace, and the muckraking journalist, we would classify our topic safari to San Francisco as a success.

 

Ms. Hayne provided this column's closing quote when she gave her assessment of von Richthofen to the Chronicle's reporter:   "He was a fine man."   We concur.   Wasn't respect for a warrior from the other side considered a proper manifestation of the chivalry code of conduct?

 

Now the disk jockey (can you see it coming a mile away?) will play The Royal Guardsmen's "Snoopy Vs. The Red Baron," the Guns and Roses' song "Welcome to the Jungle," and as a farewell tribute to a fellow whose formative years were spent in Berkeley, Johnny Otis' "Willie and the Hand Jive."    We have to go check the show times for the new movie titled "Red Tails."   Have a "I don't want to send those men up there in machines held together with bailing wire and chewing gum -- but I must!" type week.
