What to expect tomorrow...

as reported in Xinhua:
San Francisco embraces Olympic flame with pride
SAN FRANCISCO, April 8 (Xinhua) -- As the Olympic torch has traveled to San Francisco, the city is extending its arms to embrace the flame with pride, emotions and courage. With the world looking on to the sixth leg of the torch relay around the world, the flame, a symbol of Olympic unity, received VIP treatment as it arrived in San Francisco early Tuesday morning.

"We treated it like a head of state visit," airport spokesman Mike McCaron said.

Despite heightened security in the face of any possible disruptions by Tibetan separatists and anti-China groups, the city puts on an atmosphere of peace and harmony, particularly along the relay route decorated with Olympic flags...

"The Olympic torch represents the journey for excellence, and we are honored to have the opportunity to host and contribute to the Beijing Olympic Journey of Harmony," said the mayor.

Boasting landmarks like the Golden Gate Bridge, the Fishermen's Wharf, the Transamerican Building and the famous Victorian houses, San Francisco is widely seen as an ideal backdrop for the torch run."

SanFranLefty - I doubt that we will see any, but keep a sharp eye out for any of those unharmonious "Tibetan separatists and anti-China groups".
