There's more stuff coming out about the Davis bomber. I'm privy to a little extra info but won't spill it here. He's cute. I said it.
So, on Sunday the Bee had an editorial about how the city has one chance to get the arena right. If I agree that that's possible, which I'm not sure about, I certainly don't agree that we should use it to create a public square a la Times Square or Union Square. Times Square is pretty much the worst thing in Manhattan. I read something recently about how if a NYer runs into another NYer there they make excuses like "I just had to run across really quick". That probably sounds snobby but it's an indication that NYers don't hang there. Similarly Union Square is only for tourists and having spent time there recently on a shopping trip I can say that there are just chain stores and shitty rip off restaurants. Plus, neither has arenas so I don't know what that has to do with anything.
Then, they printed a long editorial by that cheerleader for luxury lofts, Rob Turner. He is calling for condo towers where the stupid 60 story condo towers were supposed to go pre-recession. He mentions "well heeled" residents. I may have already talked about this. Know why? They pretty much printed his Sac Town article word-for-word. Nice.
BAR's review of Hock Craft Farm Provisions Locavore Farm To Fork confirms what I suspected. The part about the menu putting you to sleep is funny. I won't usually judge a place harshly unless I've tried it and in this case I still would if a friend recommended it but I can't see that happening.
