Hump Day “howdy!” from Happy Larryville, GN!

Having lived in San Francisco from ’78 to ’85, I’m saddened by all of the asinine policies that are ruining it:

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2016/12/27/san-francisco-grapples-with-growing-crime-blight-after-years-liberal-policies.html

And there’s this: “With a crime rate of 70 per one thousand residents, San Francisco has one of the highest crime rates in America compared to all communities of all sizes,” says the data collection site Neighborhood Scout. “One’s chance of becoming a victim of either violent or property crime here is one in 14. Within California, more than 98% of the communities have a lower crime rate than San Francisco.”

On the hazardous waste side, the city is reporting an increase of syringes and feces sightings at 41 and 39 percent, respectively, over 2015 levels​. That’s just an average. The hardest-hit area reported a 77 percent rise in discarded syringes and a 140 percent rise in feces. The city spends about $2 million a year on urine and feces cleanup.

Yes, their liberal policies even decades ago were vexing, but I largely loved living there anyway. So much of the city is -- or at least was -- picturesque. And for most of that time, I was making enough of a living that I could enjoy much of what it -- and the surrounding region -- had to offer.

Glad I had the experience before it went way goofier. Sad!

Hai, Mac!

Driving a 36′ -- or even a 28′ -- in S.F. must have sucked mightily.

Only another 82 minutes until morning is over for you. 😉

Happy Wednesday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Mac, and Fatwa!

The first day of decorating went well, and I’m already exhausted. We’re supposed to leave to drive up to Irwindale for Day 2 in 30 minutes.
