A riot photo that is a riot

I teach a class Monday nights at USC, which is in downtown Los Angeles.  As a result of the Ferguson protests the campus was under lockdown.  No one was allowed to enter or leave.  Scary times with helicopters hovering overhead and lots of sirens and flashing blue lights.  But that doesn't mean you can't get hungry.   Here are students getting a pizza delivered during lockdown.  I had to take this photo.  I bet you won't see anything similar in the paper.

"Scary times with helicopters hovering overhead and lots of sirens and flashing blue lights. But that doesn't mean you can't get hungry". Classic 1970s ad copy!

"... No one was allowed to enter or leave..."

Unless you're pizza.

A friend in Vancouver posted a photo of Mounties bringing soup to the protesters there. How Canadian is that?

I have a Friday question for you. In episode "Fade Out, Fade In" part one and two you and your writing partner are listed as Story Editors. Was that your first jobs on MASH? And just what did the job entail?

Such pizza is banned under the new federal food guidelines. Don't expect to see this picture run on Bloomberg News.
