Re-Blogged From Restore American Glory
It wasn’t that long ago when people all over the country were moving to San Francisco and other areas of Northern California, dreaming of living the good life, with great weather and fine neighbors. Now we’ll concede that some portion of the city’s reputation was forged from PR campaigns, vacationing Americans who didn’t see the whole picture, a mythological 1960s origin story, and hell, maybe even “Full House.” But there’s no doubt that however overblown the city’s reputation was a few short years ago…well, it ain’t the city it used to be.
These days, you have a major Chicago-based medical association pulling their annual 15,000-attendee convention out of San Francisco because the place is turning into an unsafe garbage dump. Oh, did we say “garbage?” We meant feces. Because that’s what mysteriously showed up on a sidewalk in San Francisco last week: A 20-lb bag of human excrement. This is what the city looks like today.
