San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee’s So-Called “Innovation Capitol of the World” is a Graffiti-Covered Mess

Just take a look at this empty building in the heart of the Financial District – it’s been like this for a while, with more and more added almost every day:

Gee, you’d think that the “Innovation Capital” of the entire world would be a bit busier, but there you go.

You know, I’m not even sure if San Francisco is even the Innovation Capital of the Bay Area, despite what they believe at the Re-elect Mayor Ed Lee website.

Oh well.

    I think innovation would simply be to position a camera high up. I hate the intrusion of privacy, but I believe that much of the tagging going on (judging by the style) is performed by a relatively few number of people.
    Let’s finally catch them and regardless of age, make them pay a hefty fine AND devote hundreds of hours to clean-up through the City (no project 20 fro them). Also make them wear a jumpsuit with the words “I got caught!” on the back. If they don’t have the fine money, they can pay it over time.
    We’ll leave the spanking to their parents. Relegating tagging and other quality of life issues to a lower priority results in a demoralizing situation. All of these issues over time really wear you down. The citizens of SF deserve better.
