Guardian got punked on the Julian Davis story.

The SFBG is used to being polarized along very simple ideological lines and gets very confused when polarity shifts abound.

I *do* view the world through a class-prism, and I hold that just such a prejudice is necessary to detect and discover incessant reactionary propaganda and simple self-congratulatory smugness in a world chock full of it.

That said, I agree that it is wise to keep all avenues open for alliances; common ground can appear in the most unlikely places.

Still, I do question how Olague's track record establishes her fitness to serve D5. She did well to negate the mayor's illegal gambit, and if she appointed someone with your incisive intellect and capacity for independent thought in a citizen advisory position, she's done well there too. Overall, I'm not seeing signs of great independence and -- frankly -- I don't care for the system wherein the mayor gets so much power as to appoint supervisors to open seats and the musical chairs game which the system promotes; I'm not sure what a better system would look like, but I'm strongly predisposed to wish appointed incumbents to not run for re-election, and not be elected if they do.

As to my valuation of the particulars in the smear campaign against Julian Davis, I've made myself clear.
