Blaise Pascal, Penseé 347: “Man is but a reed, the most feeble thing in nature; but he is a thinking reed. The entire universe need not arm itself to crush him. A vapor, a drop of water suffices to kill him. But, if the universe were to crush him, man would still be more noble than that which killed him, because he knows that he dies and the advantage which the universe has over him; the universe knows nothing of this. All our dignity consists, then, in thought. By it we must elevate ourselves, and not by space and time which we cannot fill. Let us endeavor, then, to think well; this is the principle of morality.”

The Sarumanic Administration of Fresno State: More Pictures
In the next two pictures, you can see that there are still cars in the parking lot! The administration was so quiet about this, they didn't even warn people not to park where the trees were being cut!
The two most beautiful trees, and I'd guess the oldest, were within the sidewalk area east of the road just east of Peters. The police did not know whether those were set to be cut down. I'm going back tonight to find out.
Gosh, excuse me, we did get notice, ON BULLETIN BOARD, AT 10:16 AM THIS MORNING; looks like they jumped the gun by one day, since the warning is for tomorrow.
Parking Lots A & J located on the east side of the campus will be
reconstructed this summer. The project will include filling in the ponding
basins, realigning the parking stalls and adding new parking spaces.
Construction will begin May 24, the project is scheduled to be complete
mid-August. During construction Lots A & J will be closed. Alternate
parking locations are available in Lots V, C and P. Throughout the
project the northern portion of Woodrow Ave will be closed for moving
dirt, traffic will be rerouted through the Save Mart Center North Lot. If you
have any questions please contact Amy Armstrong.
