London Breed’s big COVID failure” (aka “London Breed Sold Us Out to COVID)” (March 2022)

As a native San Franciscan who grew up during the height of HIV/AIDS, I can say that San Francisco’s current mayor (whom I’ve criticized before) dropped the ball on COVID.

For most artists, NFTs are a false bill of goods” (aka “NFTs = ‘No Fuckin’ Thanks’, SF Arts“) (March 2022)

SF artists of all practices are dabbling in NFTs and other Web3 factors. Aside from the fact that they’re environmentally disastrous, NFTs are do more harm than good to the art scene.

The ultimate troll just bought Twitter. Expect more pain for SF” (aka “The Lingering Stench of (Elon) Musk” (April 2022)

No sooner had SF gotten rid of this grifter when he tosses his South African apartheid money at the most intrusive company in our city.

Unlike London Breed, I never took my mask off. (Now, COVID cases are up again)” (May 2022)

On April Fool’s Day 2022, SF dropped all indoor mask and vax mandates. A month later, I reported that the joke was on us as COVID cases shot up in record time.

Pride isn’t a safe space with London Breed and the SFPD” (June 2022)

Since 2020, the Pride parade was put on ice because, y’know, COVID. They’re bringing it back this year, with the return of SFPD and the still-dangerous COVID virus. Yeah, I’ll pass.
