Ok hippies, you can put your chains away

Boy, am I relieved. I actually like this tree a lot. You can’t tell from the picture but it’s a giant eucalyptus. I walk past it every weekday and on some unhappy Saturdays too (I also walk past the spot where Reese Witherspoon got dumped in Legally Blonde). UCLA has some really cool trees and plenty of squirrels and even some possums to fill them. The school has a 3 out of 5 rating on The Campus Squirrel Listings Quite frankly I had expected it to be a little higher. I mean I know we’ve got nothing on Berkley but to be out ranked by University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign! At least we got them beat in U.S. News and World Report.
I guess the reason for this sign is to stave off the massive protests that would likely plague the campus if people thought that the tree may not be fine. Personally my fears are not fully assuaged. Here’s a list of some other reassurance signs I would like to see around campus:
The guy tasered inside Powell Library is fine
The conservatives on campus are fine (all three of them).
The 1L’s are fine. Well, maybe not.
The people who live near campus are fine because students can’t park in front of their houses
The Basketball team is fine. Football? Not so much
