It’s 7 a.m., 56° and we’re headed for — what — 72°. Details are here.

The third Monday evening BART protest (following those on July 11 and Aug. 15) brought out about 200 protesters, who were angrier than the last time around, and more, by about 50.

You can see our update and get links to our coverage throughout the evening here. By the end of the evening, Helene Goupil, one of our reporters on the scene, had been rescued from arrest, and everyone returned to the office to work and eat bread and cheese for dinner. Such is life at Mission Loc@l.

Say it ain’t so, Caleb: Moving the Street Food Festival to Mission Bay, as the SF Weekly reports?

Founder/Executive Editor. I’ve been a Mission resident since 1998 and a professor emeritus at Berkeley’s J-school since 2019 when I retired. I got my start in newspapers at the Albuquerque Tribune in the city where I was born and raised. Like many local news outlets, The Tribune no longer exists. I left daily newspapers after working at The New York Times for the business, foreign and city desks. Lucky for all of us, it is still there.

As an old friend once pointed out, local has long been in my bones. My Master’s Project at Columbia, later published in New York Magazine, was on New York City’s experiment in community boards.

Right now I'm trying to figure out how you make that long-held interest in local news sustainable. The answer continues to elude me.
