When danger lurks even further up a traffic pole, the city's new Ninja squad are there.

Thinking of tampering with city stoplight cameras? Think again Mr. Red-Light-Runner. (The camera's the white device aimed at the Ninja's head.)

If, during this holiday season, law-abiding readers notice a new feeling

of security, while criminal-mastermind readers are plagued with unease,

they should remember whom to thank.

     Warning, criminals: Beneath those black robes await cans of 14th-century whoopass...

 UPDATE! Apparently, the Ninjas aren't actually fighting crime.

They're kids dressed up as part of a corporate publicity stunt,

promoting the video game-oriented website Here's publicist Sheila

Bryson, accompanying them on a day that included Ninja trolley

rides and other fun.

Sorry Sheila!

And our apologies to the Guardian Angels: Now that we know the Ninjas

were just funning, it's safe to say the Angels are still San

Francisco's best ever citizen vigilante patrol force!

  • 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.'"
