How dare you include the words "fluffy bunny" in your scathing
review ["The Apotheosis of Cute," 1/23/02]?
It seems you have been misled, or even worse, corrupted, by
Since the dawn of time, loving lagomorphs have provided Woman and Man
with companionship, love, spiritual guidance, mentorship, and a great
deal more. Since that time, the poor bunnies' only desire was to give
their little bunny souls and their fuzzy comfort to humans. In return,
the humans maligned them, shot them, ate them, made jokes about them,
forced them into bunny slavery, used them in creepy, weird "magic"
shows, used them as a symbol of pornography, misrepresented them in
cartoons, and set traps for them using poisoned carrots that were then
left as a "gift" at burrows.
Your antibunny stance shows your profound lack of knowledge about our
fluffy friends. I can understand your questioning the evil designs of
corporations who pimp bunny images and sell anything they can with a
bunny or kitty plastered on it. But they, too, miss the point.
Bunnies are more than cute. Bunnies have a completely socialist, classless,
raceless, noncaste social structure.
Now bunnies are fed up with our human high jinks and have been forced
into an action that even they did not want to participate in:
bunny revolution. That's right. While you soft, bitter, spoiled humans
complain about cuteness and adore all things negative, and try so hard
to be "down" and "hardcore" and "deep,"
bunnies (who are way more "down" and "hardcore"
than you ever were) are finally making their move. And you are in their
Do not forget that bunnies overran Australia with ease, and then let
foolish humans think that they had won. You did not. It was a ruse to
test your weakness.
The dark forces of bunny vengeance are gathering for the final conflict,
and wicked humans are in for a terrible surprise.
To illustrate this point, I have provided you with an ancient bunny
rallying cry, to demonstrate their rightful claim to this earth. Listen
and tremble humans!
"Bunny is smart,
bunny is fast,
bunny will kick your stupid ass.
Bunny is clever,
bunny is quick,
smack you in the dome with his 12 inch di*k."

I urge Cassi Feldman to take unpaid time out of her next holiday, as
I did, to actually see the New York City shelter system for herself
["Tough Love, Tough Luck," 1/16/02]. Just a few minutes there
will give her a better indication of the differences between its shelter
system and San Francisco's than she has now from inside the Bay Guardian
Homelessness isn't so simple as to be just about housing. It is about
first acknowledging that people should not be sleeping on the streets,
then providing the safe and secure shelter and social services necessary
to transition them for success into long-term supportive housing.

No Home Depot
Just wanted to compliment you on the recent articles about the big-box
legislation. The fact that you have reported past the simple "yes
or no to Home Depot" argument is to be commended. The real question,
of course, is not whether the old Goodman Lumber location should be
developed but how it should be developed to best serve the local community
the key word here being "local," and local meaning
both the Bayview and Bernal Heights neighborhoods, as well as others
The correct choice for any community can only be made by a community
that is educated on the real impacts both in the short term and,
more importantly, the long term. To do that we must look at past history
and the implications of big-box activities in other communities.
Only this way can we move forward with smart development, not just
For the record
A correction in last week's paper misstated the San Francisco Democratic
County Central Committee's endorsement of Doris Ward over Mabel Teng.
It was for assessor.
