People who live in glass houses ought not to throw stones -- though, as Demitri Martin notes, a better motto would be "No stone throwing regardless of housing situation. Don't do it. There

is one exception though. If you're trapped in a glass house, and you

have a stone, then throw it."

So we thought a bit before posting the above San Francisco Chronicle goof -- but we decided it's worth it. It's not every day the paper reports upon the closure of a landmark city church -- then documents the mayor himself shoveling a pile of dirt over the small, open-air structure (which appears to have been very stylistically "shuttered" with a red velvet ribbon).

Okay, fair enough, they've juxtaposed the church story with art from Mayor Gavin Newsom's photo-op in unveiling our new handy-dandy bus shelters. Some of the many copy editors who have been bought out or laid off in the last few months could likely have pointed that out.

  • 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.'"
