I’m not sure when the final vote is on charging fees on Outsiders at San Francisco’s Strybing Arboretum, but how about this for an amendment:
“Yes, charge people living outside of San Francisco $7 per capita or whatever, but, in exchange for that, you may not charge San Francisco residents at all over the next ten years.”
See how that works? Do you think the Society people would go for that?
The friendly California quail of Strybing will soon be lonely, it would seem. Do you think their famously sensitive ears can hear Helene Strybing rolling over in her grave?
