Mirkarimi likes where it's going


At the Carnelian by the Bay behind the Ferry Building, District 5 supervisor Ross Mirkarimi seemed like a guy who didn't want to speak too soon.

But the cheers and hugs from supporters  -- and the smile spreading across his face -- reflected polling results so far.Mirkarimi was ahead by 10 points.

"This isn't over yet," he said. "But I like where it's going."

Sen. Mark leno was more direct, saying, "I think you are the next sheriff of San Francisco."


How do the people think this country is going to rebound from our economic woes and problems if they don't participate in making the systems in place work?
