    The high price of Academic Illiteracy and Economic Misery is well manifested by these kind of events. We all had our options and choices in the City and County of San Francisco.
    As a native I say: In order to fail in the Bay Area and become a perpetrator of violent crime.
    It would be something one would have to work at. This is misery striking out at misery.
    The prisons have already run out of room for public nuisance.
