San Franschizo
Just a thought from 5 November 2003 about .

San Francisco is schizoid. In the runoff for mayor next month, we'll have Gavin Newsom, who's the closest thing we've got to a republican (and a living Ken doll), and Matt Gonzales, who's a Green and so left he wouldn't have any hope of a political career anywhere else in the country. We voted in Proposition M, which makes it illegal for Girl Scouts to sell cookies on street corners, let alone a bum ask you for change, but we also voted in Proposition L, which raised the minimum wage in the city to $8. 50 from the state's current minimum of $6.75, making us one of the handful of cities in the country to set its own minimum wage.

San Francisco: We like our politicians extreme, our wage slaves well-paid, and our homeless quiet.

This section is called Just a Thought. It's a blog where I post little pieces of what I'm thinking about at the moment. This page is an individual entry called “San Franschizo” that I wrote on 5 November 2003.

Before this, I wrote a little something called “Sign Person Five” on 3 November 2003. After this, I wrote “Signage” on 6 November 2003.
