Well,when we were looking for a place to move to,we were told to go check a duplex on the 700 block of Haight. We went by and a guy came out of the unit downstairs and just stood there & stared us down. So when we saw the landlord again,we told her what happened & she openly explained that that unit was section 8. And we graciously said "no,thank you". Now,does that make us racist? Say what you want but I,for one,don't need to live amidst such undue friction at the cost of $2,150 a month. Is that a coincidence that it's section 8? I lived in Salt Lake City,UT. for 10 yrs,& it's all the same,just different colored skin. It's a mindset that some low-income people tend to fall into. Be it that they're angry, envious,or whatever the case may be. I grew up in the projects in the eastern U.S. and was a happy camper when we were finally able to move away. Hopefully I won't have to return. But if I ever find myself in that situation again,I hope I'll be able to live in a rural area.

Luke, in case you are still following this, the answer is yes there are a group of seniors over at Encinel who think it's cool to do the "white power thing and heil hitler", and I hope you are concerned enough to ask about it. If so, speak to the woman that is co-principal of the school. I brought it to her attention but my son said he had not noticed a change.

Any word from the police on progress on this case?

No progress to report the last time I checked, toward the end of the week.

Watch the crime increase around the former Islander Motel, which is being made into a Section 8 village. The Lexus liberals who comment above will still call it coincidence, but those of us without heads in sand will know better.
