Here’s what’s on the chopping block in San Francisco:
|CIVIC CNTR P O BOX UNIT||SAN FRANCISCO||94102|
|FEDERAL BUILDING SAN FRAN||SAN FRANCISCO||94102|
|MCLAREN STATION||SAN FRANCISCO||94134|
|VISITACION STATION||SAN FRANCISCO||94134|
Now the Federal Building PO is just a little thing, sort of a secret for those in the know – no waiting there. And the Civic Center PO Box Unit, well that’s not really a PO anymore anyway.
We’re going to lose three full-fledged POs and they all just happen to be in the southeast corner?
Two in the 94134…
…and one in the 94124:

San Francisco City Attorney Dennis J Herrera is going after the owner / operator of 414 Mason, the site of the recent Union Square shootout that resulted in the death of German tourist Mechthild Schröer. (The SFPD is still working on this case – they were down in Fremont yesterday.)
Mr. Herrera is alleging that the August 8th party was illegal and overcrowded. All the deets are below.

Herrera initiates legal action against teen party venue in Union Square tourist shooting. Demand letter to owner, operator of rental space alleges Fire Code violations, unlawful business practices in ‘horrific incident’
SAN FRANCISCO (Aug. 13, 2010) — City Attorney Dennis Herrera has taken a step toward suing the owner and operator of a Union Square venue where an illegal, overcrowded party for high school-aged youths last Sunday was marred by gunfire that injured two teens and took the life a German tourist.
Herrera’spre-litigation demand letter to Joseph Ursino, owner of the building at 414 Mason Street, and Curtis Matthews, who rented out the party space, alleges that the two face, “at a minimum, civil liability for violating the California Fire Code and for unlawful business practices.” Such violations can be punishable by fines and penalties as well as disgorgement of all profits related to the unlawful conduct. The letter sent this morning acknowledges that the City Attorney’s Office is also evaluating the potential liability of Labriette Collins, the event’s promoter.
“Because of the tragic circumstances and grave public safety concerns surrounding the event and how you and others managed it, I will seek full legal redress to affirm public confidence in laws intended to protect the safety of San Francisco’s residents and visitors,” Herrera’s letter states. “Vigorous enforcement of these laws is additionally essential to guarantee fair treatment to the vast majority of responsible entertainment business operators, who invest the care and expense necessary to abide by the law, and who comprise one of our City’s most important economic sectors.”

This was the scene last night on Sutter and Hyde in San Francisco’s Tenderloin (aka Tender Nob, aka “Theatre”) District last night just after the New York Yankees won the World Series. With all the boisterousness, passersby could tell that some kind of mayhem was afoot even from a block away.

You know what makes you better than all those melon farmers out there? It’s the fact that you hang your hat every night in the City and County of San Francisco. That makes you special. To celebrate you, the California Academy of Sciences is offering free admission for you (and your neighbors). Just match up your zip code with the handy chart below, gather up the necessary proof of where you reside, and head on over to Golden Gate Park.
And the nice thing about this free admission program is that it probably won’t be as crowded as it sometimes gets on the third Wednesday of the month, when everyone gets in sans tariff.
