How many Hail Marys would a priest dole out for stealing Rosary Beads?

Last week, a man walked into a store on the corner of Haight and Clayton streets, where snatched some rosary beads and ran off. The merchant called police who were on the lookout for a stoned dude possibly saying his Hail Marys. Even that's a strange sight for the Haight. 

Sure enough, police saw the pious pilferer flaunting his stolen beads along Haight Street.

When police investigated a little more, they discovered he was not only in possession of rosary beads that didn't belong to him, but he also had plenty of marijuana in tow.

Needless to say, the man was arrested on suspicion of theft and being in possession of the Weed with Roots in Hell.

  • 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.'"
