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...

  1. Well, it’s tricky in the City – why the Mission pool is seasonal and the other R&P pools are indoors. Coupla rules when out and about in SF: 1) If you’re going further than three blocks, take a layer; 2) If you’re gonna be gone more than an hour, take a layer.

    My Canuck friends used to rib me a bit whenever I’d drop in to the Big Smoke* from “sunny California.” Then I spent an entire winter up there and did just fine, thank you very much (them: Wowww… me: Dudes, we have snow in California….).

    So I invited them for a visit when I was still living in the City, and they came on down. In the summer.

    Two days after they arrived, I took ’em to 17 Reasons. Yep. To get some layers.
