SF moment

Seen on the street a couple blocks from work on a perhaps ill-advised takeout lunch run: A dozen or so young Chinese tourists, snapping multiple photos via camera and cameraphone, of a pair of protestors (two of perhaps hundreds) on their way to the torch route, just shutter-clicking away as if they were Brad & Angelina -- both had "Free Tibet" signs, but neither were among the wackier protestor types at all. One girl asked for and was granted permission before the photo session began, and turned to her companions, with a gleeful "chinese chinese chinese FREE TIBET chinese chinese!" The tourists seemed to find the whole thing totally hilarious. Like, pants-wettingly hysterical. I wish I understood what the deal was, man.
