The Torch in San Francisco; Tutu

Archbishop Desmond Tutu addressed protesters in San Francisco:

"We're not at a moment where we are calling for a boycott of the games because the athletes have spent a lot of time preparing, and you don't want to penalise them unnecessarily. But I am certainly calling on heads of state not to attend the opening ceremony, to register their disapproval, their disgust really," says Tutu.

And "fear" and "confusion" in SF as the torch begins its route, greatly changed to avoid protesters. And the airspace above has been declared a no-fly zone for some reaosn.... small planes trailing banners?
