SF Weekly Letters For July 21 - 27, 2016 


Message is clear: It's absolutely astounding that San Francisco does not already have a text-to-911 capability! ("Texting 911, Max DeNike, 7/14/16) Let's see, $9 BILLION annual budget. Check. $50,000,000 a year in OVERTIME for SFFD. Check. Same for cops. $265,000,000 annual for homeless "nonprofits" (haha). Check. Yet high-tech S.F. has no text-to-911 service! AND SAN BERNADINO DOES!!! This city is such a corrupt, pathetic joke. Supervisors, you are on notice! Patrick McGuire

Scarcity of city life: Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night because of stress when I realize that we can hardly save any money for a rainy day because of the high rent ("Rents Falling in SF, But Sky Remains Overhead," The Snitch, Max DeNike, 7/12/16). I have to rent here because of work. With a daughter in school and a new baby, where am I going to get money for their future college costs? College costs are soaring too. With so little savings, what's going to happen if I lose my job? Since I'm getting old, and the Bay Area and the rest of the economy not liking older, aging workers, what then? It's so hard to get ahead economically, and financial stability feels like like an unattainable myth. There's so much stress I feel when I realize there's such a thin line between today and financial ruin, and that there is so much at stake for my family. Middle Class Serf

Anti-virus, pro guns: Hasn't this guy had enough mental issues ("John McAfee Brings Guns to Bitcoin Fight in SF," The Snitch, Max DeNike, 7/18/16) to be denied a permit yet? Kim O'Connor via Twitter

  • 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.'"
