Life for the law-abiding in San Francisco

This little squiblet from C.W. Nevius’ column in the SF Chron (which is about the only thing in the SF Chron still worth reading), sums up everything that is wrong with San Francisco:

Greg and Christy Baciocco, who have run NuStar Heating and Metal Supply on Otis Street since 1989, are resigned to their graffiti curse. Sometimes they get tagged two or three times a week. And don’t tell them to put up security cameras.

“The guys who are doing it look right into the camera,” Christy said. “They are not concerned at all.”

They must clean up the wall or face a city fine, so the Bacioccos bought paint so they can clear the tags themselves. That civil effort was recently noticed by a city health official.

She notified the couple that keeping paint on the premises in gallon containers would require them to pay a hazardous materials fee.

And of course, since San Francisco is, next to Berkeley, the closest thing to a true Leftist city in America, it’s also a tocsin, warning ordinary Americans what happens when you let the Left have the keys to government.
