Believe it or not, the skirt creeper story is a big deal–perhaps even bigger outside the Berkeley campus. Here’s what the local media had to say about Wednesday’s skirt rally.

* Daily Planet has a sick editorial cartoon. And we don’t mean “sick” in a good way. [Daily Planet]

* Video from the Daily Cal. Just say “no” to fear. [YouTube]

* San Jose Merc came all the way up for this? Their tale puts the estimate at 50 people. [Merc]

* This one’s complete with almost up-the-skirt shots and the phrase “this DEEviant.” [CBS 5]

* This guy tells us that the predator “puts his fingers basically where they don’t belong” and reassures us it’s not a “prank.” NSS. [KRON]
