I'm late in my reading today, will check that one.
As you no doubt are aware, there are growing chasms happening - even I know that, only a reader now, not even a visitor. Not that this is related to all that, but I suppose it could be.
Most of my bay area friends (I include you) live outside the city proper (I don't know where you live, just putting you in the friend category) and the one who did live in the middle of it.. we managed to have a permanent silence after she insisted on coming with me to italy for a small part of my trip and then was a walking aggravation, and I suppose vice versa. So, I can't just ask her take at this point. I'd be interested, but she is probably out of there anyway, for financial reasons.
