Flash Mobs In San Francisco May Need Permits
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. You could be standing on a street in San Francisco and suddenly find yourself in the middle of a mob. A flash mob is a sudden gathering of people who do things like dance and have pie fights. The gatherings are planned by word of mouth and on the Web. Now the San Francisco Chronicle reports that city officials may crack down. Mobs are not good at cleaning up the trash. A Valentine's Day pillow fight clogged storm drains with feathers.
It's MORNING EDITION.
