Article on patent wars grabs reader's eye: A good, and very interesting, article ["The New Cold War," Caleb Hannan, feature, 11/7]. And kudos to the illustrator; I really like that patent wars picture.


Blog Comments of the Week
Find a healthy medium in weight discussion: I've been saying for years that fat people are the last people someone is allowed to make fun of in this country ["Read Local: Discrimination Is Unacceptable — Unless You're Fat," Alexis Coe, the Exhibitionist, 11/14]. There should be a balance between encouraging others to eat healthier options and outright ridicule, ostracism, and assumption of a lesser status.


Nancy Pelosi didn't meet the job requirements: I think she's a great representative of San Francisco, but she hasn't been an effective Speaker of the House ["Nancy Pelosi Says She'll Keep Her House Leadership Role," Coburn Palmer, the Snitch, 11/14]. She wasn't effective with the majority, then she lost the majority, then she failed to regain the majority despite voters having a major swing back away from the right. It's time for some new leadership; alas, the House will keep doing what it's doing and hope for a different result.


Not everyone who visits Chick-fil-A supports it: It is very silly to believe that every single person there has the same agenda ["Chick-fil-A Opening Gives Disappointed Republicans Something to Celebrate," Erin Sherbert, the Snitch, 11/8]. I have been to seven different Chick-fil-A openings for one reason alone: free food. I am a college student that does not have enough money to splurge on fast food. So if I can camp out for one night and receive hundreds of dollars' worth of free food, I will do it in a heartbeat. And on top of that, I am taking money away from the company. I have not spent a single cent at Chick-fil-A and I have pulled over a thousand dollars from its pockets. It is always good to look at the factors that lead people to do something, not just what is in the news. Remember, only [Star Wars] siths deal in absolutes.



In "Savoring Cassava's Japanese Breakfast," [Eat, 11/7] Cassava Bakery + Cafe's address was incorrect. The restaurant's address is 3519 Balboa St. In "Market Places," [Eat, 11/14] one of 331 Cortland's vendors was misidentified as Spice Hunter. The correct name is Spice Hound. SF Weekly regrets the errors.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
