I avoided looking at this video at its many links because I find Broke Ass Stuart an annoying egotist, but you I trust, and so I watched it and was deeply impressed. Great white-board video.

The Board of Supervisors meeting tonight has been pretty amazing. I stayed away from City Hall and decided to go all John Waters and simply shoot my favorite stills of the speakers as they were frozen on Government Access TV.

Mike: I'm glad you'll be chronicling the event. I ended up unable to go to City Hall. My neighborhood is on fire -- and not just because of neglectful landlords who seem happy to let dilapidated buildings burn so they can extract more market value.

My church surveyed the congregation: every renter fears being evicted. Even the homeowners feel the ground shifting under them.
