Complete Set List
Don't forget about the others: Although I am well aware that [Common's] Be isn't his first album, like the other albums discussed here, to be performed [at the Rock the Bells Festival], his presence on the set list seems more than worthy of a mention ["Back for the First Time," Tamara Palmer, Music, 8/24].
Nantucket Meets Mexico
No substitutions, please: Being from New England, I was excited to see this place [Tacko] pop up and I had really high hopes for it ["Ahoy, Gringos!" Jonathan Kauffman, Eat, 8/17].
The food was decent, but what stands out in my mind is how rude [owner] Nick Fasanella is. All I can say is, don't even think of asking for a menu substitute.
DNA Defects Found in Lab
Another link in the failure chain: Brilliant article! This is one of the best pieces of reporting I've seen in years, and it's a shock the major media outlets don't pick up on this ["Crime Lab Confidential," Peter Jamison, Feature, 8/24]. It's a great example of continued failures within the various departments of San Francisco. There are skeletons in all department closets.
I commend Rockne Harmon [prosecutor] for standing up and calling it what it is: deception, unethical, you name it.
Blog Comments of the Week
In response to a post about BART hackers releasing private photos of the agency's spokesman: Well, I for one am not going to give this another second of my time, nor am I going to look for this scintillating photo ["Anonymous Circulates NSFW Photos of BART Spokesman Linton Johnson," Erin Sherbert, the Snitch, 8/24].
How rude of these people. They show their true colors time and again. There is nothing normal or adult in the way these idiots do their dirty work — they're just trolls. Boring trolls at that. I suppose, given their obvious lack of maturity, that they're all sitting around their dumps together tittering and pointing, saying, "Look at his wang, hehe." Yawn.
Another response seeing Anonymous as part of a movement: We do follow the rules of the society we would create, which is why so many "revolutions" just replace one power structure with another. I think Anonymous is doing a brilliant job of standing up to power, but falls far short of a Gandhilike "be the change you wish to see" model of resistance. But we should admire them for what they are, and do our part to complete the movement.
Anonymous needs to learn what free speech means: Really? This is how to protest for free speech? Off-base and childish do not even begin to describe it. Hey, I want free speech, so let's go searching through other people's stuff and embarrass them in order to get what we want. Come on, people, act like serious advocates in order to be taken seriously.
