San Cranecisco--that's what I'm calling the city of 49 square miles that has become fully Manhattanized as Herb Caen said this city would eventually become and it has.
Have you seen downtown? Particularly near the Bay Bridge, only Dubai would rival SF with the over abundance of cranes and $49 million dollar condo towers. But hey, it's a techie world and oh, Yahoooooo!
I used to cross the bridge quite frequently from Oakland but I rather dread going into the city now. It's not just the parking, the horrible roads, the mass potholes and such it's just navigating through a land not designed nor prepared for the million or so people who come to it every weekday. Advantage, Emeryville, Oakland, where you might not have a Coit Tower or Tadich Grill, but you can park and see the sun too. Party on.

*This has been such a tense week for yours truly I actually went to Berkeley.
*Those of you that wrote in with well wishes for Mom, thank you so much. Of course a few schmendricks managed to get their two cents in act like a bunch of schmucks, anonymously of course.
*To rip, to belittle, to criticize, to skewer --public people; media people; myself included, is fair game...people's mothers, kids, father's --are not.
