City Councilwoman Claims Arizona Does Not Border Mexico

Look! A map!

San Francisco garnered a lot of attention when it was early to the bandwagon to boycott Arizona over that state's draconian immigration policies (but not the first; Oakland beat San Francisco to the punch while the City By The Bay dawdled). Say what you will about the city's eventual boycott -- challenge level: You can't use the words "toothless" or "symbolic" --  and its architect, Supervisor David Campos. But you can't question that Campos, Mayor Gavin Newsom and others at least can find Arizona on a map.

Sadly, the same can't be said for pro-boycott Milwaukee councilwoman Peggy West, who notes that The Grand Canyon State is "a ways removed from the border" with Mexico. Video after the jump. Groan.

  • 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.'"
