San Francisco, charming city of hills and cable cars, has long lured tourists with cultural and counter-cultural attractions, but recent events might give travelers pause:
Sara Jane Moore, would-be assassin of President Gerald Ford, was paroled from a nearby prison Monday, after 32 years.
A woman with drug-resistant tuberculosis took a commercial flight to S.F. and spent a week loose in the city before checking into the hospital.
Good-bye, Liberal credentials: Workers at three Sonoma County vineyards ousted the United Farm Workers union; so many Black residents have left that the city formed an African American Out-Migration Task Force.
The quaint City by the Bay is becoming an agglomeration of high-rises, a “city of the very rich and very poor, a boutique city and not a real one.”
And San Francisco’s reputation for fine dining for all tastes is not an unmixed blessing . . .
