The SF Giants currently have the worst record of any baseball team. It
is so discouraging. The blue scum-sucking Dodgers arrive in town and
their goal is to humiliate us further. Argh. Thank goodness for the
Warriors who are in the playoffs and doing very well.
I really enjoyed the two hour Town Hall meeting yesterday with State
Senator Scott Wiener and State Assembly Members Ting and Chiu.
It was held in the auditorium at Mission High ~ lots of young and old
folks in the audience and since the three men are all progressives they
were singing to the appreciative choir. So no yelling or rancor like
when the GOP appears to face people who worry about healthcare
and the environment. Big push for Senate Bill 562 - Healthy California.
The March for Science was yesterday too, but since I'm still on clean-up
from this cold I felt it best not to try to do everything.
The new director (Max from Germany) is bringing a little whimsy to the
staid old Legion of Honor. I like the whimsical installations and it's time
that place was shaken up a bit. When I sent these pix to a friend she
thought that I'd been to the Tate Modern. Now let's see how the donors
react to this new art...
We finally hit the Legion of Honor yesterday for the exceptional Monet
(The Early Years) exhibit and it was wonderful indeed. I had heard that
the best time to go was during the late afternoon when the buses of people
and school kids had departed, so we followed this very good advice and
were able to see all of these magnificent paintings without much interference.
Such a pleasure saying good bye to Bill O'Reilly yesterday. Congrats to
the women who worked so hard to bring this smug, mean, sexist man
down. And thanks to the advertisers who pulled their money ~ the key.
What? Finally? Sunshine after weeks of grey, damp and ugly weather?
I walked in my nabe, up to the post office at Van Ness and 21st Street.
It's a bit of a grubby area and that's OK by me. Too much sanitizing
of a city seems to justify high real estate prices. I had my latte in the
sun and as I was walking home this splendid sidewalk garden almost
knocked me over. Welcome Spring ~ not a day too early.
