Correcting the Mayor's Correction: Nathan Ballard Suggests Media Count Gavin's Rings

Posted By on Wed, Feb 25, 2009 at 11:59 AM


On Monday, Feb. 23, Mayoral spokesman Nathan Ballard ran a CORRECTION on the Mayor's blog of various media reports:

"Both the New York Times and the Associated Press inaccurately reported Mayor Newsom's age," Ballard wrote. "He is 41. He was born on October 10, 1967."


Ballard is correct about Newsom's age. However, he mistakenly suggests that Mayor Newsom was "born." 

In fact, Gavin Newsom was assembled by a team of Ikea technicians. His warranty expires in 2010.

  • 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.'"
