San Francisco school board president Gabriela Lopez announces in the @sfchronicle that the renaming of 44 schools is on hold and historians and school communities will be consulted on the matter after schools are reopened. Excellent news!…
The SF school board’s decision to halt the controversial renaming of 44 schools comes after the group met in closed session for seven hours last week, apparently to discuss a legal challenge to the renaming process. Story via @jilltucker and @KellieHwang.…

My latest: San Francisco’s beloved cable cars are in trouble. They haven’t run in nearly a year due to the #COVIDー19 pandemic, and the @sfmta_muni won’t promise they’ll run in 2021 either. Saving them likely depends on a planned tax measure next year.…
I’m with you! San Francisco isn’t San Francisco without its cable cars.
I’d never heard of long-ago San Francisco Mayor Roger Lapham until five minute ago, but I already despise him. In an annual address he said, “Junk the cable cars!” Thankfully a very smart woman named Friedel Klussmann intervened.…

Six days until our #ILoveTheRichmond celebration plus #TotalSF virtual movie night. Spend the day supporting small businesses and then press play on “Always be my Maybe” at 7 pm. Got the party started today with a visit to @GreenAppleBooks. 📚 ImageImageImage
Great small businesses. Slow Lake Street. Mountain Lake Park with a 2,000-year-old natural lake. (In 1996, an alligator was spotted in the lake, and the Chronicle and Examiner waged an unsuccessful battle to capture it first. Only in San Francisco.) #ILoveTheRichmond #TotalSF ImageImageImageImage
Should have made it to the Outer Richmond for this! Next Saturday, Norton the It’s-It is expected to make an appearance at the @balboatheatresf.

It's San Francisco vs. San Francisco. City Attorney @dennisherrera today will sue the San Francisco Unified School District and the Board of Education for failing to craft a plan to reopen its schools. "So far, they have earned an F," he says.…
Mayor @LondonBreed supports the city's lawsuit to reopen public schools.

“This is not the path we would have chosen, but nothing matters more right now than getting our kids back in school," she said. "This is hurting the mental health of our kids and our families."
Listen to me and @demianbulwa discuss the city's lawsuit against the school district -- believed to be the first in the state and maybe the nation -- on today's Fifth and Mission.…

And a compromise with the school board to name every public school in SF after a drag queen. Honey Mahogany High would be the new it school. 💄💋💃
I’ve never roasted anybody, and I’ve definitely never roasted anybody via Zoom. But that was fun! (If my public schools named after drag queens idea takes off — and it SHOULD — @SisterRoma Elementary would be 🔥🔥🔥.)
I had to look this up. Sister Boom Boom was a Sister of Perpetual Indulgence and ran for supervisor in 1982, listing her occupation as “Nun of the Above.” Then the city passed an ordinance called the “Sister Boom Boom Law” requiring candidates’ real names on ballots! #TotalSF

My latest: An open letter to @bchesky, the CEO of @Airbnb who’s worth $11.2 billion after last week’s IPO, on how he could use some of that money to help suffering San Francisco. On my list? Small businesses, public schools and food banks. What’s on yours?…
Wow, lots of people sticking up for billionaires this morning!
