Here’s the link for our Immigrant life vignette and also our feature about an Indian woman who left New Delhi at the age of 18.

Jaxon Van Derbeken at the SF Chronicle has a good piece on the police department’s success in keeping murders in the Mission to zero so far this year. Remember last year’s rash of murders that happened just about now? Quiet is good.

Lauren Smiley is at SF Weekly is onto the story about the police towing the cars of undocumented immigrants. It’s been going on ever since the legislature voted to revoke as of 1994 the right of undocumented immigrants to hold a valid license. But, we too have noticed an upswing in cars leaving the Mission behind a tow truck.

One restaurant owner on Mission Street said part of the reason business is down is that the Mission has become known as a place where you can drive in to treat your family to Sunday lunch and end up losing your car over a simple license check.

If you click on the Spot.us ad on the right, you’ll be able to see that Mission Loc@l only has to raise $350 more to finish off our campaign to support the Vacancy story. So spot.us! Thank you to everyone who already has–much appreciated.

Noticed today walking down Mission Street that The Corner is now only open at night. Sad, it was nice to see people sitting outside in the middle of the afternoon having a glass of wine.

And, to end well, here’s a lovely photo from mission mission called Mission St. Rainbow. And, if you missed our earlier post on the East Bay Express story on the weirdness at Cafe Gratitude being somewhat explained by it’s association with the Landmark Forum self-help seminars, you can catch up there as well.

And, for those of you who feel like a good time, there’s the 10th anniversary celebration at Foreign Cinema tonight that’s also a fundraiser.

Well, lunch today with the new Mission Loc@l crew.

Fingers crossed, Viola
