@ GeorgeSmiley: And if you happen to be on the West Coast, you HAVE to go to San Francisco. Lots of shit to do and watch there. Check out Height Street and downtown (and since you're a tourist, Pier39 and Palace of Fine Arts). I've lived in 5 different states and 3 different countries and I have to say that San Francisco is by far the best place I've ever lived (actually I used to live in Newark, which is in the San Francisco Bay Area, it's just an hour drive away). It would be a shame to not visit one of the most beatiful cities in the country (nice weather too and really friendly ppl). Oh, and they have great chinese and Indian/Pakistani food there too (infact, there's this great place called "Shalimar" on O'Farell & Jones, it's comparable to authentic Indian/Pakistani food).

"First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a communist;
Then they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a socialist;
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist;
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out— because I was not a Jew;
Then they came for me— and there was no one left to speak out for me." -Martin Niemöller
