One more reason to hate smelly hippy protestors- not only are they obnoxious, but they are expensive:
City agencies in San Francisco added up the costs of the war protests that disrupted the city in March and came up with more than $3.5 million in expenses and lost revenue.
I wonder if this figure includes the vandalism damage to private businesses?

Full disclosure- I used to be one. I grew out of it.
