Mission residents watched the last presidential debate before the Nov. 4 elections in bars across the Mission neighborhood. At Pirate Cat Cafe, on 21st and Florida Streets, neighbors gathered and participated in a live radio show.
Monkey, the owner of Pirate Cat Cafe, tells us what he thought of the debate.

Founder/Executive Editor. I’ve been a Mission resident since 1998 and a professor emeritus at Berkeley’s J-school since 2019 when I retired. I got my start in newspapers at the Albuquerque Tribune in the city where I was born and raised. Like many local news outlets, The Tribune no longer exists. I left daily newspapers after working at The New York Times for the business, foreign and city desks. Lucky for all of us, it is still there.

As an old friend once pointed out, local has long been in my bones. My Master’s Project at Columbia, later published in New York Magazine, was on New York City’s experiment in community boards.

Right now I'm trying to figure out how you make that long-held interest in local news sustainable. The answer continues to elude me.
