SF Olympic Torch Relay News

So yah, I was thinking of taking the morning off and going up to SF to watch the Olympic torch relay.

I guess it was a good thing I didn't. Oh I wasn't worried about a clash of protesters and supporters or anything like that. But the way the relay was done, there was a good chance I wouldn't have seen it at all!

Looks like they lit the torch, ran into a warehouse and reappeared a few miles away in a alternate route...

How the hell was anyone who wanted to see the torch see it?

Don't get me wrong, I'm not against the protesters at all, but really? How is anyone supposed to see the relay if *no one* knew what the route was?
