It seems that the Mayor of Berkeley and at least one City Council member are beginning to do the weasel dance as they recognize the extent of their mis-step. Apologies are starting to happen.
Of course, its' purely coincidental that six GOP Senators are drafting the first bill to divert funds from the City of Berkeley to the USMC.
They shouldn't get the money back. In fact, more and more funds should be permanently diverted from the City of Berkeley to the USMC until either the Mayor and Council resign, or the City goes bankrupt. Whichever comes first.
In the meantime, the Berkeley Chamber of Commerce maintains a lovely list of folks not to do business with until such time as the conditions above are met. I suggest writing and thanking them. A similar note to the fine folks over at the Visitors and Convention Bureau might be useful as well.
