From The San Francisco Chronicle:
“Hunger strike protests anti-immigrant vigilantes

Diana Ponce talks on a phone in the yard of her San Pablo home Wednesday, the fifth day of a hunger strike to protest the gathering of armed volunteers, the Minuteman Project, at the Arizona-Mexico border to keep illegal immigrants from entering the United States.

In all due respect, a hunger strike IN THE FRONT YARD?!?

With bedroom furniture, television, cellular phone and handy boombox in the grass?!? Maybe finish the decor with a big, needless sign that says, “see me“?! What about that rug on the grass!?!

In someone ELSE’S front yard?!!

    That poor lawn.

    There’s only water in that igloo! Sweet water. With fruit flavoring. Maybe a Fresca.

    I have several chairs just like that on the front porch and know why she’s on a hunger strike. The tag on them says maximum allowable weight is 220 pounds, she’s quite a bit of fasting from that point. That Igloo cooler kinda makes me think it’ll be a while before that chair will serve any function other than visiting reporter seating.

    If she strikes for a year she will be a size 9!
    I think she was looking for an excuse to lose a few hundred pounds.
