SF Weekly Letters For June 23 - 29, 2016 


One of these men is not like the other: Well, let's see. ("Ayesha Curry Was Right: Her Father Looks Nothing Like This Con Artist," Chris Roberts, The Snitch, 6/17/16). Two eyebrows, check. A nose, check. A forehead, check. OMG, it must be him. I wondered what the gentleman looked like and he looks nothing like the credential thief, so I would suggest that eye exams are in order for the security staff. Things that make you go hmmm

Dolt action: Quick note: The rifle used in the Orlando massacre was not an AR-15, despite early press reports ("The Gun Lobby's Rainbow Coalition," Chris Roberts, 6/16/16). It was a Sig Sauer MCX, which is nothing like an AR-15.

Actually, they don't: Why does the type of gun matter? If we change it from a AR-15 to a Sig Sauer MCX there are still 50+ dead and countless lives ruined. M J Rudolph

We'll go off-topic: Clinton and Wiener, birds of a feather ("Scott Wiener's Camp Blames Jane Kim For George W. Bush," Chris Roberts, The Snitch, 6/17/16). Her 13 million "popular votes" account for 6.5 percent of the population. I'm one of the 93.5 percent that she does NOT represent. However, whatever the eventual result in any of our corrupt electoral charades may be, it is blatantly obvious that "our votes" don't count, unless we make them. BERNIE OR BUST. Patrick Monk


Callous by design: It never fails: when something works and is not owned by the big drug companies, it is "unlawful" ("Major Cannabis Company Raided in Sonoma," Chris Roberts, The Snitch, 6/15/16). It is time to get the hell out of the people's business of caring for others and go find real criminals and bust them. If what they were searching for wasn't present and never there they should have packed up and left with everything intact. If the government has any balls left, they will create a tax for this and let the business continue to help others which is one thing the big pharmaceutical companies could care less about. John Lloyd

Bad as they could conceivably be: How many cops in the Bay Area were helping themselves to underage prostitutes for free, shielding the hookers and pimps from arrest and prosecution, and how many more just looked the other way? ("Great: Oakland Police Sex Scandal Expands to S.F.," Chris Roberts, The Snitch, 6/16/16.) Jon Melander, via Facebook

And this is with a federal judge watching: Oh goody: a juicy underage sex story involving officers from various Bay Area police departments. This should titillate us more than the latest Trump fiasco or the GOP's last hurrah. So now we've had the S.F. chief resign over a racist police force and now Oakland's chief resigns over this one huge scandal. Protect and Serve. Alan Ogilvie, via Facebook

  • 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.'"
