SF Weekly Letters For July 7 - 13, 2016 


Homelessness Anti-Hero: He did so much damage to our society ("The Great Eliminator: How Ronald Reagan Made Homelessness Permanent," Chris Roberts, 6/29/16). And we are still paying dearly for his misguidance... Also he was behind Proposition 13 that has basically has undermined California for years and years.. one for the Big Dipper!! Daniel McWilliams via Facebook

TY, Regan: When programs are defunded and taxes are cut, people's lives are impacted. Prop 13 and many other initiatives reduced civic investment. That's why so many areas of our social and physical infrastructure are in disrepair. On the political front, we can thank Reagan and his neo-con movement for people like Trump. Hating govt and the vilification of helping people all started w/ him. Rhonda Clements via Facebook

Consider yourself lucky: Glad to say I've seen him play. Used to live a couple streets over. ("Oakland's Piano Man," Jessi Phillips, 6/29/16.) Rich Welsh via Facebook

Adios, Aquarius: It's just so gross. ("S.F.'s Oldest Vinyl Shop, Aquarius Records, Will Close on July 4," Jessie Schiewe, All Shook Down, 6/28/16.) The city has become overtaken by douches and deep pockets. I remember when SF was weird... Now it's just yuppy. SMH. Gwendalai Lama via Facebook

ISIS and S.F.: Add terrorist threats to earthquakes, suspicious fires, evictions, and random muggings in the ever growing list of things to worry about living in SF. ("ISIS Threatens San Francisco -- Sort Of," Max DeNike, The Snitch, 6/27/16.) Hiram Rodriguez via Facebook

Cycle Me This: Just by numbers alone, I believe bicyclists commit more infractions of the vehicle code than cars. ("S.F. DA Promises to Come to Assaulted Cyclist's Aid," Max DeNike, The Snitch, 6/29/16.) I estimate 75% of all cyclists run red lights, don't stop at stop signs, don't have lights on when riding at night etc. every day and the cops turn a blind eye. another problem we have are not just illegals but low income people in SF who drive with no license and insurance, these are the same people our supervisors are encouraging to flock to SF. Anyone who violates the law should be cited, and I ask the city to do a study on who are driving these vehicles who are committing these act, what race, what income, are they residents of SF and then take action. oldfart

Plastic Bully: Good! Using Planet Killing Ocean Raping Plastic should be a crime of Terrorism. ("Someone Has Been Setting Fire to the Picnic Tables at Stern Grove," Jessie Schiewe, All Shook Down, 6/30/16.) Plastic is MADE FROM PETROLEUM . By using PLASTIC you SUPPORT the DEATH OF THE PACIFIC. You SUPPORT death of Babies and Children killed by Plastic. Plastic is where 80% of Petroleum Production goes. Gasoline is a By Product of the Process of Making PLASTICS. If you cheap skates used REAL TABLES you would not need to fear AWARE PEOPLE'S PROTESTING with Civil Disobediance. Eco Warrior

  • 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.'"
