Martial Law Declared In Palo Alto

BE DOPE NEWS (BDN) California governor Grey Davis has declared a state of emergency for Palo Alto, a city in chaos. Davis cites the upcoming BeDC as the cause.

"Traffic has been piling up for days, and people have been storming the Cabana Hotel, hoping to obtain the remaining [BeDC] tickets that will be available at the door," said Davis.

Until the BeDC wraps up on Saturday, only residents of Palo Alto and attendees of the BeDC showing proper ID at strategic checkpoints will be allowed into the city. CalTrain service is suspended, and a midnight curfew has been put into place. The National Guard has the authority to shoot violators on sight.

"These measures are necessary for the safety of our citizens, and most importantly for the safety of our BeOS developers," Davis explained.
