It’s 7 a.m, 59° and headed to 70°. Details for today and the next ten days are here.

Some days are just lousy and Monday became one of them with the death and apparent suicide of Robin Williams. I think everyone in San Francisco has a family member who has spotted the comedian and actor somewhere in the city. It was a testament to Williams that his fan base spanned the ages of any family. My daughter Geraldine saw him in the Haight when she was in middle school and he was shopping with his son. She was thrilled. They exchanged words about a shirt. More thrills.

Geral’s sister, Lola, announced the news of his death at dinner last night. I had somehow managed to stay off of social media for most of the afternoon and had missed it. Silence. Everyone at the table just sat there taking it in.

He must have been in terrible pain and he will be missed by many, many people.

Other news:

KQED reports that California voters will not get to weigh in on money in political campaigns as a court removed Prop 49 from the November ballot. 

SF Streets blog has bike-share data in beautiful constellations.

The SF Food Fest is gearing up and SF Eater has the news on a Aperol Spritz Brunch. 

Here’s hoping that the day is better than Monday.
