I 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.
