It seems like the controversy over Single Residency Occupancy Hotels (SRO’s) has moved from Medjool to the mail. Mission Dispatch reports that residents who live in Single Residency Occupancy Hotels are not receiving their mail correctly. City Attorney Dennis Herrera has taken up this issue and is taking legal action against the US Postal Service stating, “My office’s investigation has documented heart-rending hardships to SRO residents because of undelivered checks, medical notices, appointment information, personal letters and official correspondence.” According to the newspaper over half of the 500 SRO hotels in San Francisco are located in the Mission District.

For all you map lovers our friends over at Burrito Justice have posted yet another fun map- this time involving Dolores Park. I guess even Google Maps can make typos.
