I was in SF a few weeks back and, though I expected it to be very
liberal, I was surprised by some of the goings-on I heard about. The
trip I was on visited Alcatraz. Great, and interesting from a
historical perspective. Only later did I read about the plan - THAT
ACTUALLY MADE THE CITY BALLOT - to tear down the prison and replace it
with a peace center. Only 72% of people in the city voted against it.


-Matt, too much of a historian to countenance demolishing historic sites
