Henry: Moscow Hippies & Megaloads

About a month ago the city of Moscow hosted a public forum to discuss the potential of moving ExxonMobil's megaloads through Moscow on U.S. Highway 95. The meeting was preceded by a good old-fashioned protest, demonstrating the true size of a megaload and decrying what it will do to Moscow's precious trees. It has been a long time since Moscow's hippies have dug out their leather vests, put on their Birkenstocks and readjusted their graying ponytails in an effort to rally “the movement” against “the man.” There's something about a protest to get the blood pumping and, as the Berkeley of north Idaho, Moscow really knows how to throw one. Quite frankly, I've missed it/Henry Johnston, Moscow-Pullman Daily News. More here.

Question: Do you consider Moscow to be the “Berkeley of North Idaho”?
