The city's first lesbian bar, it featured pianist Gladys Bentley, a large African American woman in white tails and top hat. The law was overturned by the California Supreme Court, but the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control and San Francisco police retaliated by harassing gay bars until Black Cat closed in 1963. Old Crow: 962 Market St. Opened in 1935, it was the last of the old gay bars, including the College Inn and Pirate's Den, on the...

The thing that floors me about it is the utter lack of awareness of people who would say such things for a newspaper article. I mean, we know they THINK them....
After years of devastating drought, ultra-wealthy Rancho Santa Fe, Calif., faces water rationing, but residents feel aggrieved. If you can pay the price for more water, they argue, you should get it.

Story
Tagline
There's no kill switch on my sweet, sweet style.
Introduction
An over-caffeinated and under-employed grad school dropout, aspiring leftwing intellectual and cultural studies academic, film buff and occasional reviewer, and former private detective. Raised in San Francisco on classic films, radical politics, burritos and soul music, then set loose upon the world. He spends his time in cafés with a laptop and headphones, caffeinating and trying to construct a post-whatever life.

Occasionally, he does Macintosh tech support, editing, and social media consulting to pay for his coffee. 

He would like a job in nonprofit arts administration, or teaching film/critical media literacy.
Bragging rights
I once rode in an elevator with George Lucas and Francis Ford Coppola. I've flown around the world - both east to west and west to east - and been on six of the seven continents (no prizes for guessing which one I haven't been on yet).
