Avast Ye Hipsters!
San Franciscans love to block traffic. It's true. On any given day in this city there are hundreds of people clogging the streets celebrating or protesting or sometimes just milling around for no good reason whatsoever.
Mostly this makes me smile. Protests/Celebrations twenty four hours a day seven days a week means i am rarely bored. But sometimes... i just want to shake the good citizens of San Francisco and tell them to chill the fuck out.
I don't know if you've heard, but there is a major brouhaha over in the Mission about American Apparel's intention to open a shop on Valencia. In fact Pirate Cat Radio is hosting a gathering tomorrow at 988 Valencia St. at 10:00am, for community leaders and 'concerned citizens' to discuss the evils of 'formula retail.'
Com'on Missioners, is their nothing more serious in this city to be 'concerned' about? Or am i missing something? Seriously, someone convince me.
