Puppet Play:
NEWSMAN-THE FOURTH ESTATE
by the San Francisco Mime Troupe
REPORTER: Here we are again at San Francisco State College, and
there are unconfirmed rumors of tactical squad violence,
but from everything we of the 4th estate have seen, the
police deserve to be commended for their restraint
(CHORUS OF SCREAMS) in the face of terrific provocation.
Of course there are extremists on both sides, but the
Responsible Majority appear to be sick and tired of the
excesses of a tiny minority and eager to get back to their
studies. In the meantime, there have been some minor
skirmishes and in general an eerie calm and a rainy gloom
has settled over the fragrant and strife-ridden campus.
This is your reporter at San Francisco State, awaiting
further developments. Over and out.
STUDENT:    Hey, quick, help us. The Tac Squad got a bunch of
people down in the boiler room and they're beating their
brains out. Help us stop them.
