The Hip Happenings in  La Lengua

Home of the city’s first parklet (scene of Lt. Gov –oops Mayor Gavin’s recent excuse-mongering you tube address to whomever is still paying attention), the little hood that could now geting attention from SF Chron.  Carl Nolte (Chron reporter who does column called “native son”) refers to area as “San Jose Guererro” neighborhood.  A native son perhaps, but not a Mission native and clearly not a deovotee of Burrito Justice.

Bike to School Day

Why don’t kids bike to school every day?  Beats any other form of transportation, even for the notoriously lazy.  Who knows?  They may even go to school.  In an effort to spur bike consciousness among  young scholars, a coalition of groups, with $500,000 in fed stimulus money (Chinese credit at work!) are sponsoring the second, hopefully annual, San Francisco Bike to School Day on April 15. Last year  500 kids rode bikes to 25 schools.  This year the goal is 1000.
