Appears as if San Francisco’s seniors have more than enough food, but not enough cold hard cash.
I inquired about Crispy Hexagons, but there was no reply.
9/11 Truth Crazies Return to Bay Area: “Reclaiming the Truth, Reclaiming Our Future” Today in OaklandThursday, September 8th, 2011
You know, 9/11 conspiracy theorists have become just like JFK assassination conspiracy theorists.
Anyway, they’re back. Deets below.
As seen in Union Square a while back
Ten Years Later, An Independent Investigation of 9/11 is Needed
SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 7, 2011 9/11 Reclaiming the Truth, Reclaiming Our Future will be held Thursday, September 8, 1 pm to 10 pm at the Grand Lake Theater, 3200 Grand Ave., Oakland, and Sunday, September 11, 1 pm to 9:30 pm at the Herbst Theatre, 401 Van Ness Ave., San Francisco. Speakers include Mickey Huff, Dr. Peter Phillips, sister of fallen firefighter David Weiss Michele Little, authors Paul Rea (Mounting Evidence: Why We Need a New Investigation of 9/11), Prof. Anthony J. Hall ( Earth into Property), Anodea Judith (Waking the Global Heart: Humanity’s Rites of Passage From the Love of Power to the Power of Love), Kevin Danaher, Joanna Macy (World as Lover, World as Self), filmmakers Ken Jenkins and Brett Smith, and radio hosts Bonnie Faulkner, Carol Brouillet and Sherry Glaser. Along with films Psywar, You, Me & the SPP, Loose Change 9/11: An American Coup, Hypothesis, 9/11: Explosive Evidence – Experts Speak Out, there will be live streaming from Toronto and Seattle.
The Toronto Hearings will examine evidence for the inadequacy of the U.S. government’s investigations of 9/11, an event which has been used to initiate military invasions and to restrict the rights of citizens. The founder of Firefighters for 9/11 Truth, Erik Lawyer will hold ONE: The Event – Shifting from Fear to Love in Seattle to encourage “the choice of love over fear, kindness over anger, and responsibility rather than blame.”
The diverse speakers agree that the official 9/11 Commission Report and the NIST Reports on the destruction of the World Trade Center buildings are not believable and that an independent investigation into 9/11 is needed. Those in Toronto plan on issuing their own 9/11 report. Evidence suggests those most responsible for 9/11 were rewarded, that no one was reprimanded, and that others were scapegoated unjustly for their alleged involvement.
The Bay Area events are benefits for the Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance, whose mission is “to seek and disseminate truths about the terrible crimes committed on September 11, 2001, exposing gaps and deceptions in the official story, and to thus inspire more eyewitness revelations, truthful media coverage, and a movement that will bring the responsible criminals to justice and eliminate governmental and corporate policies that enable criminal elements to commit such acts.”

The Case of the Crispy Hexagons: Famous Akit Can’t Abide Food Bank Abuse From Our Determined Senior CitizensTuesday, August 23rd, 2011
So yeah, sometimes our seniors don’t really need to eat the food that they line up for at area food banks and churches and whatnot, but what are you going to do? It’s a lifestyle thing.
The weekly scene at Willie Brown’s old church in the Western A:

So sure, some of them start horse-trading immediately (a big no-no near Glide Memorial – they want you to at least cross the street before dickering) and others sell their stuff down at U.N Plaza (that Mistake by the Lake, or fountain, whatever.)
And others, in more suburban areas such as the Western Addition and the West Bay, load their booty into the boots of their aging GS V8 Lexuseses.
But, what can you do?
