But finally The City gave in, and the two patches have returned to their rightful state: covered in trash and home to an army of shirtless men, swilling 40’s in the sun! How did they think they could stop us? Someone better tell the British guy things aren’t so bad after all… 34 SUMMER OF LOVE ON 6th? Cops, or not, it’s summer on 6th Street. Love is in the air, there’s singing in the halls of the Hotel Auburn, and, down the block at 5th and Minna, an enthusiastic couple was observed the other day at noon, having loud, passionate anal sex behind a dumpster.

This City needs the Boy Scouts. The kids need to learn manners and honor, stuff the Boy Scouts teach. ” And the guy at the next table nods enthusiastically, “Yeah, 50 we need THAT! ” he implores, confidentially. ” Someone took over. The old City ain’t the same. Where have all the shopping carts of summer gone? Can you still buy crack at the Crack Burrito? I know something’s wrong when a young mota salesman in Dolores Park offers me a one for one trade, one joint for one regular cigarette! Or when a homeless guy on Market Street tells me, “Sure the cops are always waking my ass up, but, hey, you got to give them a break.

What else is new? A bitter and largely unspoken war is on in the streets over every inch of space in this town. The cops kick the homeless out of Civic Center and they move across the street to UN Plaza. The cops start to sweep UN Plaza and the punk rockers across town start throwing rocks through the windows of Harrison Street live/work lofts. A landlord in Noe Valley is even making news for trying to kick a 90-year-old woman out of a house she’s lived in for over 40 years. You’d think a landlord would be a little self-conscious about doing such a stereotypical “Evil Landlord” thing, but I guess not.
