column, San Francisco Chronicle,
advocates public nudity for all and free dental care for seniors, held
a High Nudi-Tea Party at the Castro Commons
on Wednesday. Strange de
Jim, who photographed the scene at 4:15 p.m., stopped back at 5:10,
noting that one guy was already putting his kilt on. "Nudi-Tea Parties
aren't what they once were," observes the sage Strange.
Note: Here's the photo I sent Leah from 4:15. At
5:10 one of the two
guys was putting his kilt on, and the young lady had taken her top off.
I got there
as the orange car joined the line of six trolleys on Market
between Church & Sanchez and the driver made the passengers get
off. I assumed the first one had broken down,
but right after I took this photo they all moved out. I thought maybe
the power had been off for the whole line, but then the other cars
couldn't have gotten there. Maybe the first car was broken and got
fixed, but I still couldn't figure why, knowing of the trouble, cars
had still started out with passengers at Castro and then made them get
off two blocks later. Any ideas?
I found this toy on top of a trash can.
Judging by the spelling, a teacher was still needed.

rupture in front of Starbucks on 18th had 2 blocks of 18th & 2
blocks of Castro blocked off for a couple of hours. You could smell the
gas and hear the big whoosh from blocks away.
