  • Red Meat Is Bad For Your Heart and Your Criminal Record
A man caught stealing meat from a grocery store, apparently didn't have the heart to carry through with the crime.

At about 9:20 a.m. on Jan. 13, police were called to a grocery store on the 4900 block of Mission Street after getting reports of a man shoplifting food.

When police arrived, the victim told police that he saw the man enter the store and put various meats and coffee in his cart.

The suspect then walked over to what he thought was a secluded area and put the food items in his jacket, according to police reports.

The man then walked out of the store without paying, police said.

The man was detained outside the store. When officers arrived, they ran a check on the suspect and discovered he had previously been convicted for theft.

At that time, the man suffered a heart attack and was taken to San Francisco General Hospital while he was still booked for the felony arrest.

Hopefully, his doctor reminded him to stay away from the red meat.

  • 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.'"
