The Examiner Finally Gives Us a Reason to Read Mayor Ed Lee's Column

Posted By on Thu, Jul 12, 2012 at 8:05 AM

Reading Mayor Ed Lee's column is like reading the side of a cereal box -- a really bland cereal.

But today's headline from the Examiner's favorite op-ed columnist was surprisingly entertaining, to say the least.

Really, we don't fault the Ex copy editors (what few of them there are left) for this one, because we probably would have started banging our heads on the keyboard as well if we had to edit his drab prose ourselves.

Sometimes, the only thing more hilarious than (effed-up) headlines are readers' comments, like this one:

Unfortunately, for you headline-skimmers out there, you'll actually have to read the article to know what the hell this column is about.

  • 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.'"
