Mission morsels

San Francisco is not like the rest of the country. While the national unemployment rate is 6.6 percent, we're enjoying 4.8 percent here in the midst of the tech boom. That means many employers are looking to hire.

They resort to some odd stratagems. This "Joe" may not be the most articulate writer of "help wanted" notices, but he's demonstrating enterprise by putting a sandwich board on a wide boulevard.

I have to wonder how the "busser" -- when they find one -- will be able to afford to live in a town where a fixer-upper house just sold for $1.4 million, over $500 thousand over the asking price. I also have never stopped thinking of the squat building where this Zagat Rated restaurant is located as the Kentucky Fried Chicken it was for many years.
