Tree Sitting turns out to be expensive (who knew?)

Missed this Monday but a lot of you have seemed intrigued by the group formerly known as the Tree Sitters outside Berkeley's Memorial Stadium.

From the San Francisco Chronicle:

"Berkeley's infamous tree-sitters have been hit with a rude surprise since they came down to earth: Judges are socking them with thousands of dollars in fines and legal fees.

"Ironically, much of the money -- which could total more than $10,000 per sitter -- is going straight to the University of California, the very institution the tree-sitters were protesting as they tried to save a grove of trees outside Memorial Stadium."
