(0)

A busload of 49er fans based in Bayview Hunters Point traveled to the 49ers headquarters in Santa Clara today to ask the team owners not to build a new stadium with developer Lennar. The group also requested a meeting with the York family regarding health problems they say are a result of Lennar’s activities.

In November 2006, the York family announced that the team was planning to leave San Francisco and relocate to Santa Clara. The announcement set off an intense competition to win the 49ers’ affections. Read more »

The Christian Right has their landlocked panties in a tussle over Folsom Street Fair's promotional "Last Supper Poster" -- and I strongly urge you to check out the anti-gay "Americans For Truth" Web site for a good chuckle -- but the poster's nothing, eroto-artistically speaking, when it comes to what Folsom's got in store: the first ever Folsom Erotic Art Alley!

Those zany kids in Bonde do Role - they don't answer their e-mail, their tour manager misplaces his cell phone - it's a regular sitcom over in BDR HQ! Too busy livin' it up, I guess. Anyhooo, after much ado and no interview by the time today's issue hit print, I finally heard back from the band's Rodrigo Gorky. Read more »

More and more City Hall watchers are focusing on the asterisk that the Mayor's Office has left next to the name of the newest member of the Board of Supervisors, Carmen Chu.

"She's an interim replacement," Newsom flak Nathan Ballard confirmed for me yesterday. In other words, she may just be a placeholder until the Board of Supervisors votes whether to remove disgraced Sup. Read more »

If you have the privilege of living in California — home to a wealth, nay, an embarrassment, of agricultural riches — then eating locally farmed products isn't only your right, it's practically a duty. The Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture (CUESA) is holding their fifth annual Sunday Supper this weekend at the eminently cool Ferry Building off the Embarcadero, featuring family-style dinners by the Bay's finest chefs, cooked up from the produce sold at the Ferry Plaza Market.

Urgent: Ammianoliner correction

|

Sup. Tom Ammiano called this morning with a critical correction of yesterday's Ammianoliner. (Which can be heard, as attentive Bruce bloggers know, every day on his home voicemail.)

The correction, he reported, is "hung" instead of "hungry."

Tom said that he would buy a new answering machine one of these days, so his Ammianoliners would be more understandable. Thanks, Tom. Keep them coming. B3

In the inaugural vignette grotesque of Genet’s 1949 memoir-cum-roman noir Le Journal du voleur, the black prince of literature recalls his childhood travels between Paris and the ruins of Tiffauges. Here, along the verdant slopes of the Loire, was the crime scene of France’s most diabolical pederast and murderer, Lord Gilles de Rais. Read more »
