It’s 7 a.m, 45° and headed to 69° or let’s just say 70°. While we never have a real summer, this is feeling ridiculously good. Details for the next 10 days are here.

Leif Haven writes in the SF Weekly about bringing pedestrian deaths in San Francisco down to zero and offers a few suggestions, including the very cool SkyCycle routes being talked about in London. There,  bike lanes would run above the city’s rail lines.

Burrito Justice writes about La Lengua’s Pizza Hacker reboot. And in case you missed the photo of the fence art on Mission Mission, here is your link to see it now. 

We Built This City’s photo and comment…”uh wut” on the silver phallic art project unveiled at the 24th Street BART station matched my own reaction when I returned to the city on Friday and rode up the BART escalator to see the new plaza for the first time.

My photo is not nearly as good as We Built This City’s, but here it is.

The cylinder reminded me of the rather large phallic sculpture in the Women’s Room at the Courtauld Institute of Art. Halfway through the term I discovered that it was actually soap so unlike the sleek structure at 24th street, it was somewhat useful.

Meetings: None today and parking is free!

6:30 to 7:30 a.m. Work the Twerk in Dolores Park. If you missed the workout this morning, you can join it on Wednesday or Friday at the same time. It is free, but you’ll need to RSVP.

11 a.m. to 11 a.m. The city’s Martin Luther King Celebration happens at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.  It’s free and includes films, panels and a march that begins at 11 a.m. at CalTrans.

8  p.m. to 10 p.m. Trivia night at Rosamunde’s.

SF Weekly offers a full listing of what’s happening at the bars. 

A List of AA Meetings is here.

Enjoy the day.

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.
