SF Mime Troup in Lake Merritt Park

One foggy cool night I met a friend at Lake Merritt in Oakland and we were treated to an evening of free entertainment by the San Francisco Mime Troupe. Though the subject matter was grim (the Bush Administration and the war in Iraq), the performers did their best to make us laugh through our tears and frustration. I was happy to see the wide mix of people in attendance - old and young, black and white, rich and poor - but I couldn't help wishing there were more of us (we were about 60 or 70 total). If only there was a way to turn all the sports fans in America into street-theater audiences and activists....imagine!
