First, let’s take Today’s Mission back a couple of days, and congratulate Plug1 of for prompting a debate, and helping to earn the right to for photographers to take pictures on Muni. Good job, Plug 1!

There’s more good news today too. In a bike-nap and rescue story that is truly epic, involving an SFPD sting operation, pleas on Craigslist and co-starring Allan Hough of Mission Mission as Obi Wan Kenobi, along with some bike safety tips. Allan’s got the link, New to the Bay’s got the post.

We hope everyone enjoyed it, but the San Francisco International Film Festival is now over. The SF Appeal has the wrapup here. Be sure to also check out this great post about the MTA cracking down on handicapped parking pirates here. Meanwhile, keep reading Mission Loc@l for a report on pirate taxicabs going up later tonight.

Meanwhile, 7X7 is getting ready for it’s upcoming neighborhoods issue, and they’re asking you, their readers our readers San Francisco residents to submit either a telling photo or a 300-word “love letter” to your neighborhood.
