Giants parade has fans lining the streets of San Francisco

Ordinarily, we're not in favor of closing libraries, but it seems like a good idea what with the city of San Francisco set to party honor the Giants for their World Series victory over the Texas Rangers.

Besides, it's only for one day. The University of California's Hastings College of the Law decided to shutter the school and the library today, given its location just a block from the Civic Center Plaza, the epicenter of the Giants' celebration.

"The closure of the entire school, including the library, is in the interest of public safety," the school said in a statement.

The parade begins at 11 a.m. PDT; it ends with the Giants getting a key (25 guys, one cab key) to the city.
