All the deets, after the jump
“Affirmative action has always been a touchy subject in California, a state with many high achieving white and Asian students. In 1996, California residents passed Proposition 209, which prohibited public schools from considering race in the admissions process. After Proposition 209, the number of Asians in the elite UC college system surged. But now, a California legislator has put forward Bill SB 185, which would allow public universities to consider race. The Berkeley College Republicans fear the effects this bill might have on the UC system. They hosted a “diversity” bake sale to protest the possible effects of the law. Will the bill go through? Maybe – but some foresee it being vetoed next month.

Eagerly Anticipated Return of One of America’s Most Enduring Music Legends
SAN FRANCISCO, July 21, 2011 – The City by the Bay is eagerly anticipating the triumphant return of one of the American music industry’s most enduring and beloved artists. Diana Rossis set to appear Friday, September 16, 2011 at 8 PM at the Golden Gate Theatre in downtown San Francisco. This will be the recording superstar’s first performance in San Francisco since 1969, when she performed with the Supremes at the Fairmont Hotel’s Venetian Room.
Diana Ross, her music and her voice are legendary. The concert, a full theatrical experience, will include breathtaking costumes and stage design, along with a live string and horn section.

She embarked on her extraordinary solo career in 1970, and has not stopped since.
Diana Ross has had a profound influence on American popular culture and has become an icon in the entertainment industry.

Here it is, straight from the horse’s mouth:
“Thank you, all.
After the wonderful altruistic support we’ve had since and before the incident at Passion Cafe, we’ve decided against selling the restaurant.
Our initial goal was to create a change for the betterment of the residents in the Sixth Street corridor. After 35 years of building South of Market there had been one continuing desire and that was to bring change to Sixth Street which was festering throughout the SOMA neighborhood; as contractors, we took the most blighted building on the Street and we accomplished our goal and have encouraged many new businesses to use us as a model to bring their ideas to the Mid-Market, Sixth Street corridor.
No one could have predicted the economy, consequently we decided to operate Passion Cafe and we’ve had much success and have been lauded from State Senator Mark Leno and have received awards from City, State and Federal entities, too many to mention (except, thank you Supervisor Kim, S.F. Travel, CVE, Mayors Gavin Newsom and Ed Lee, Urban Solutions). The show of gratitude has been humbling.
It’s ironic that on the morning of the incident, I had come early to have someone hang a for sale sign early in the day as to be safe not to injure anyone below, if not for that I would never have been the recipient of a sad, deranged attacker. We had come to that decision feeling very proud of our accomplishment. We’ve survived, in large part, because of our supporters.
After a confusing period, I would like to put all speculation to rest and again, thank everyone for their continued support and encouragement. Passion Cafe will remain, amongst our new neighbors, from Burning Man to Twitter to the International Museum of American Art to all the other eateries we’ve encouraged to move to the new, vibrant Sixth Street and Mid-Market.
Please continue your patience, big things are on their way.”
I don’t know, maybe during lunch today you can pop on over to the Ferry Building and score a slightly discounted Black Box($) or Burgundy Box($$) of master chocolatier Michael Recchiuti’s obscenely-highly-rated choco.

I don’t know, I think this unofficial secular holiday has been losing steam over the years and decades, but can you really afford to ignore it altogether?
Anyway, I’d advise against giving “trinkets,” under all circumstances:
“In the United States, the day is often celebrated by giving one’s assistant gifts such as flowers, candy, trinkets, lunch at a restaurant, or time off.”
All right, you’re on your own…
