Beyond The Fringe
Dear Readers: I somehow managed to erase this post so I'm recreating it in a condensed form. Sorry about that.
On Sunday afternoon, the Green Party was holding a presidential debate for their candidates at the Herbst Theatre on Van Ness.
They were selling tickets for the affair from $10 to $20, which struck me as absurd since the day was so gloriously beautiful, and the last thing I would want to pay money for is to sit in a stuffy theatre listening to political platitudes.
For a very funny account of what it was like inside by Elaine Santore at the Fog City Journal, click here.
A young man with Ron Paul signage was handing out flyers in front of the building...
...and a paranoid looking gentleman from the Peace and Freedom party had a petition to put Single Payer Health Care Insurance on June's ballot, which I happily signed. The owners and executives of health insurance companies belong in jail for the rest of their lives, since they've been stealing resources from all of us while giving absolutely nothing of value in return.
