Mayor Jean Quan on Tuesday renewed her appeal to Occupy Oakland representatives to meet with city officials about negotiating a peaceful resolution to the protest's encampment outside City Hall. Quan said the month-old encampment in a public plaza, which has grown to about 180 tents, is hurting local businesses and straining an already stretched city budget. "This situation is costing us real jobs," the mayor said in a statement. "We can't afford to lose a single job."How did Vichy Oakland get into this mess? Oh, that's right, Quisling Quan invited the protestors back. This is your petard, on steroids.
