Subpoenaed -- Again

Former San Francisco Archbishop William J. Levada's visit to the city last week created the kind of media stir that the powerful Roman Catholic prelate may have preferred to skip. And he did, mostly. Avoiding a phalanx of TV cameras,…

The Chronicles of Ridicule

Back in October, the Chronicle ran a cheery little piece advertising an event at UC Berkeley, where a trio of "The Simpsons" and "Futurama" writers -- who happened to have graduate degrees in mathematics -- discussed the shows' nerdy math…

News, Dog Bites Newsom Unleashed

Newsom Unleashed

For obvious reasons, this column loves a politician with a serious bark. We just didn't imagine that the image-conscious, hair-gelled Gavin Newsom would be the one doing the woofing. Especially at a relatively small dog: the San Francisco Bay View…

Dollars for Dentists

There's nothing Dog Bites loves more than an esoteric discussion at an obscure public meeting, which is why we got so riled up at a recent get-together of the Board of Supervisors' Government Audit and Oversight Committee (also known as…

A Bridge Too Far

The day the Chronicle published the seventh and final installment of its "Lethal Beauty" series, a three-sentence Editor's Note lay like a banana peel on the paper's second page. The Nov. 5 note read: "The first installment of a series…

Undead Can Dance

If KRON's Covering It, You Know It's a Party Another Halloween, another city-sponsored, alcohol-and-weapon-free celebration in the Castro. Ah, the memories. We won't soon forget our excitement last week as we threaded our way through a downright spooky crime scene…

For Love of Boonville

When we first heard about the literary festival Litquake, we were suspect of it, mainly because of the name. "Litquake" has that good-and-good-for-you spin -- à la "Rock the Vote," "Safe Sex Is Hot Sex," and "Fruit Is Nature's Candy"…
