Public steps

American Thinker has a funny post about the fact that workers employed by multi-millionaire Dianne Feinstein, when doing landscaping work outside of her new home in San Francisco, inadvertently stripped to dirt a beautiful garden that was part of a public staircase.  As Thomas Lifson points out

Public stairs running up hillsides are common in both San Francisco and Berkeley. Typically, owners of adjacent properties are charged with maintaining the steps and landscaping the adjacent properties.

That reminded me that, in a quiet neighborhood in San Francisco, which has many hideously ugly cement stairways climbing up the hillsides, someone did something beautiful.  It is a reminder, again, of the power of individual ideas.

    I really dislike rich folks putting their boot and power on the little guy. Too much classical liberal education, I think.
