  Idiot. Of course a Tree Sitting Knucklehead would be eating granola
KOIN.com: Local News, Weather, Sports, Entertainment and Health: "Man Brings Enough Granola To Last The Week AP

HOOD RIVER, Ore. -- Hood River police seem unfazed by a young man who has vowed to spend a week suspended high in a tree in the center of town.

Anthony Villagomez, 24, started his tree sit at 11 p.m. Sunday night and said he was going strong. He has five gallons of water and enough granola and to last him through the end of the week.

Hood River Police Lieutenant Jerry Brown said that as long as Villagomez presents no threat to the public or to himself, he is free to stay up there.

Villagomez said that earlier on Monday afternoon, the police officer approached the tree wearing sandals and carrying a cup of coffee. They're exchange was cordial, he said.

Villagomez, who is trained as an arborist, says he is staging the tree sit to protest the Bush administration's forest policies. He says he believes his is the first truly urban tree sit."
