The Berlin Wall Falls
If this blog accomplishes nothing else, at least I have managed to get an ugly chain-link fence torn down around a new public park and the magnificent pagoda/temple sculpture by David Best & His Volunteers is finally accessible again to the public for which it was designed.
There were lots of people involved in getting the Department of Public Works to stop being so inflexible and arrogant (originally, they were talking about keeping up the fence until September when the sculpture was slated to come down), but the really heroic characters who made sure it come down were District 5 Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi and his aide Boris. Thanks, guys.
