One of the only few good things about the SF Weekly is the cartoon "PUNI." A couple of weeks ago, "PUNI" had a cartoon making fun of all the turf-wars going on in the Mission- hipsters vs. Yuppies, people who live of a life of poverty as a statement vs. people who live of a life poverty because they're poor, non-crackheads vs. crackheads, etc. It was pretty frickin' funny. Naturally, this didn't go over very well and the SF Weekly got bombarded with letters complaining about some of the racist bits in the piece (apparently, nobody is complaining about all the busts on Yuppies and Hipsters? No Peace, No Justice…..). Which is fine, that'll happen. Well, the Board of Supervisors of our fair city, having nothing better to do after they've attempted to block the naming of Candlestick Park, want to pass a resolution condemning the cartoon.
So, to sum up, some homeless guy using my doorstop as a pillow is okay but writing a satirical comic strip isn't. And smoking in the park is bad, but shooting up in the park isn't.
This city is pretty silly.
