What can I say about Berkeley CA?

What a fascinating conglomeration of people and culture. I am skirting around the central reason for our going to Berkeley, as I’m not sure that it is really something that I want to publish on the web. Suffice it to say that it is not quite like anyplace I have ever been before. I would say that certain parts of Madison WI, and Royal Oak MI aspire to be like Berkeley, but Berkeley clearly is the source and mother of all hippie things. It is the spring from which the magic water flows. All other such places are mere shadows. Here it is undiluted and runs deep.

It was a full day, and we accomplished much and met some good and helpful people. I am glad we went.

Your family is in our prayers. Also, have a slice of Blondie's Pizza for me while in Berzerkley. Get some clam chowder with some real sourdough bread and a pint of Anchor Steam in SF. I noticed you went to Stinson Beach... in High School, my friends and I would swim in there in the summer until reports of Great White Sharks freaked us out. Ron Jung

We hope and pray you find peace and your hearts can heal.

p.s. also try the anchor porter - very coffee-ish.
