Native born San Franciscan.
Inveterate political observer. I was, repeat was, a long time Democratic voter. It has been a long slide downward to where, now, most of the pols on view are cocktail party hors d'ouevres for the Republicans. And the Republicans are power mad and certifiable... too many freaks in that show.
Oh: last and truly least, but fair warning, I have been banned at bigger places than this.
I was banned for having quite a lot of spine. Or starch in my crinolines. Or both.
