Where Have All of San Francisco's Kids Gone?

Posted By on Wed, Aug 17, 2011 at 7:45 AM

San Francisco has long battled the growing trend of families with kids leaving the city for the suburbs, where rents are cheaper and tots can eat as many McDonald's Happy Meals as they want without Supervisor Eric Mar watching over them. A new Census survey showed that there are 5,000 fewer kids today living in San Francisco than there were 10 years ago.

So what's happening to all these kids? Let's hope this unsavory cover of Open Exchange has nothing to do with it.


Aside from just being plain weird, putting a baby inside a large cooking pot for any reason is just wrong, in that Hansel and Gretel sort of way.

We don't eat dogs, cats, or kids!

  • 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.'"
