Today’s Mission: 09.19.09

Safari users, here’s your link to today’s feature on Buena Vista Elementary’s leap ahead in test scores.

The SF Gate reports a shooting on a fatal shooting near 24th and Shotwell streets yesterday evening. This would be the Mission District’s first recorded homicide this year.

Also, according to CBS5, Ingleside police will be stepping up enforcement on local Muni bus lines, including the 14 and 49, which run down Mission Street.

Ready for more good news? California’s unemployment is at a 70-year high of 12.2 percent, according to the New York Times, which gives California the auspicious position of fourth in the nation in unemployment.

A couple enjoys the music and dancing at Chile Lindo on 22nd Street.

But it’s not all bad news. If you were on 22nd Street last night, you might have seen the Chile Lindo street party celebrating Chilean independence which, according to witnesses, turned into an impromptu dance fest complete with instrumental Michael Jackson covers. The good part is it’s going on all weekend, so you’ve got two more chances to join in the Chilean empanada and wine-fueled fun. A warm night dancing on San Francisco streets – what could be better?

After the post of a few days ago, Burrito Justice has posted a revised, apparently Tron-inspired hyperlinear BART map. It’s really nifty looking, so nifty in fact that they went ahead and made t-shirts out of them.

Today on their Friday Hey DJ! Q&A, SF Weekly interviews Señor Oz, weekly DJ at Elbo Room and member of Afrolicious.

And last, Mission Mission announces a fundraiser to support photography on Mission Mission buy Kevin a new camera. Seriously, though, it looks like a lot of fun, and the raffle prizes look pretty kickass. Maybe I’ll be able to stop whining about not having a bike, and start whining about not having tires for my new kickass bike frame from Mission Bicycle Company.
