Extinct Flower Discovered on Mt. Diablo
A small pink flower, thought to be extinct for 70 years, has been discovered on Mt. Diablo, by a Berkeley graduate student hippie male. The flower, named Mount Diablo Buckwheat, was last seen in 1936. For the uninitiated, this is one of those peaks that you fly over just before you begin your initial descent into the San Francisco Bay area. It's in the East Bay, a few miles east of Danville. Unfortunately, some crackpot is trying to get them to rename Mt. Diablo, so you'd better hurry if you want to find it.
