So the new mayor of SF has made it his personal misson to clean up the TL and golden gate park. Apparently he bought a house in the Haight Ashbury neighborhood and has told the cops that it's time to get rid of all the panhandlers and hustlers. I've heard about SF crackdowns before and thought they were jokes, but after being there a few weeks ago I really couldn't believe how much things have changed. There where practically no travelers and the undercovers that have left me alone for years rolled up on me the second day I was there and ran my shit, tried to get me to consent to a search and told me "one wrong step off the sidewalk and you're outta here." This was literally just 45 seconds after I had groundscored 14 caps of molly and am still not completely sure that the cops hadn't planted them there. Several of my friends have had similar experiences in the past month.

So long story short, watch your back if you're gonna be hustling in the park, or just hanging out and drinking a 40. These guys ain't fucking around.

Since I wrote this things have calmed down and things are pretty much back to usual, at least according to some friends who where there a few weeks ago.

This thread should probably be locked and put to bed.

During the Anarchist bookfair, Haight St. was pretty much drenched in traveling kids.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $25.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $25.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $25.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $25.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
