It’s 6:47 a.m, 62° and headed to 78°. Details for the next 10 days are here, but the quick assessment is that it will be warm again tomorrow and then cool to the mid-60s again on Saturday.

Artist Ana Teresa Fernández gets a lovely review of her show On the Fence, now downtown at the Gallery Wendi Norris. “Foreign Bodies defines that space between the “real” performances and the surreal feeling of the painted, filmed, and photographed documentation, which adds a compelling dimension to these already strong narratives,” writes the reviewer at Droste Effect. Read the full review here and visit the show. 

For climate change doubters, there is this chart on SF Gate of carbon dioxide levels, which are at their record levels.

And if you wondered how California is doing in terms of the drought, KQED gives us the answer. The state’s very dry — now 100 percent in drought conditions. 

Perhaps it is time to forget all of this and try the newly opened La Rondalla, once a Mission institution that has been closed since 2007.

Or raise your fist in anger by joining the May Day protest at 4 p.m. at Mission and 24th streets.

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.
