Uh-oh. The recession has wrought many things, and we suspect that forgoing day care or after-school activities may be one of them. This means that more and more kids are left at home alone to fend for themselves -- or in the care of grandparents, who provide love, cookies, and discipline for free.

But occasionally things go wrong. Very wrong.

Call us suspicious, but we smell a rat when someone who can't spell very well has a "senior walker" to trade for video games, 30 bucks or "420."

Junior, whoever you are, give Grandma back her walker and tell her you're sorry.

  • 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.'"
