    August 31st, 1992 is the day that Randy Weaver surrendered to the Federal Authorities, ending the 10 day siege on Ruby Ridge. This is the incident that preceded the Waco siege and is known for the unconstitutional rules of engagement and overzealous actions by the jack booted thugs of the federal authorities that resulted in the death of two innocent people– Sammy and Vicki Weaver, Randy’s son and wife. It is notable that Randy was acquitted of all charges except missing a court date and violating bail conditions on an ATF sting operation where it is suspected that Mr. Weaver did…

  • ¡Miercoles Gigante!- Snapshots From Galería de la Raza Fundraiser

    Few nights have been as warm, gorgeous and amazing as the fundraiser that Hard French threw for the Galería de la Raza this past August 19th, ¡Miercoles Gigante!  Persia slayed as emcee and Executive Director Ani Rivera brought on a few teardrops with her heartfelt thanks and impassioned words on behalf of the cultural soul of the Mission.  La gente knocked back palomas and cans of Tecate as they swarmed the patio, gagged over Persia, Glamamore and the Spice Queers and boogied down to just about every queer superstar dj in town. San Pancho, you haven’t forgotten how to show your…
  • Why It’s Irresponsible to Not Vote if You’re New to San Francisco

    image from Bloomberg I was in a Lyft Line the other day. Since Lyft Line is the company’s carpool service, there was another stranger in the car, other than the driver. We’ll call her Madison since I don’t recall her name. Madison works in tech and I was telling her how a big part of my mayoral campaign is trying to get people in tech to be involved with local SF politics and to care about The City. When I asked Madison how long she’d been in SF and if she was registered to vote she said, “I’ve been here for a couple years but I’m still registered…
  • Burning Man The Musical

    Alex Mak - Editor & Comm. Outreach

    Well, Burning Man jumps the shark again, and this time the sharks are singing.   Oh the mixed emotions…did these guys get permission to use the Burning Man name for commercial purposes?  Because that is a big no-no…is this going to be a parody?  Are these people actually burners? Initially I wanted to roll my eyes at this popularization of an event that is supposed to be the antithesis of pop-culture and commercialism.  It would be one thing to perform ‘Burning Man the musical’ at the actual festival, as a way of giving to the city, that would be great.

    This year’s largest art installation at Burning Man has just been completed and is in place on The Playa. No, I’m not talking about  The Man, or The Temple, The Straight Edge or even The Trash Fence.  Beginning at The Man, it stretches along the entire clock face of the city, spanning the alphabet of city streets to the trash fence. It is the lynchpin for the entirety of the city’s infrastructure, as well as every art installation and camp from the BLM compound to First Camp to walk-in camping. Though largely unheard of, the project has been a prominent aspect of Burning Man for…

  • Scot’s Product Review: SGK 440 Portable Power Solar Go Kit

    Hugh James Latimer
    31 Aug 2015 | 1:20 am
    This is something I wish I had owned back in my old days at the newspaper. We sometimes had to go places where there was no electricity and coming up with power could be a real hassle. As the years rolled by, the need for power got bigger and bigger. When I started, the cameras were mechanical and we shot film. By the end, everything was digital and required batteries, plus we had computers and cell phones too. We often drove around blowing fuses in cars with inverters plugged into the lighter socket in a desperate effort to keep stuff running. With the Solar Go Kit, I would have had fewer…
  • Pat Cascio’s Product Review: Cold Steel/Rawles Voyager Limited Edition

    Disclaimer: Neither Jim Rawles or Hugh J. Latimer asked me to do this article, nor did Lynn Thompson from Cold Steel. I received an e-mail flyer on this limited edition folder and requested a sample for review. No one involved in this project, including myself, are profiting from the sale of this folding knife. All proceeds are going to charity! ————— The Cold Steel Voyager folder is one of the best-selling folders in the Cold Steel stable of knives. It’s always in demand. I really like the Tri-Ad locking mechanism on this line of folders. It’s super…

  • Letter Re: A Year’s Supply of Food/Cooking Oil Alternatives

    Hugh James Latimer
    31 Aug 2015 | 1:15 am
    Dear Hugh, With regard to the discussions about a renewable source of cooking oil, bio-diesel, and perhaps lubricating oil as well, I’ve often thought peanuts (aka, “goober peas”) may be a viable option for those of us who live in the south. Obviously, they’re not as visible as sunflowers, and statistics at this website seem to suggest that they produce a higher yield of bio-diesel than rapeseed. I’ve read bits and pieces about backyard peanut growing, but I suspect large scale cultivation may be necessary for meaningful oil production. At any rate, their obscure…
