We are sorry but this headline was too good to pass up.
I must say that I have seen some gnarly stuff in San Fransisco. Let’s just say that the floor of the BART is often “damp.” The Tenderloin is a disaster. And San Fransisco is the only place I’ve ever been followed into a restaurant by a pan handler who insisted that I buy her a piece of pizza. (I didn’t.)

San Francisco Mayor London Breed, in her first one-on-one interview since taking office, said homeless advocacy groups that receive funding from the city need to better educate the homeless to “clean up after themselves.”
“I work hard to make sure your programs are funded for the purposes of trying to get these individuals help, and what I am asking you to do is work with your clients and ask them to at least have respect for the community — at least, clean up after themselves and show respect to one another and people in the neighborhood,” Breed told the Investigative Unit, referencing her conversations with nonprofit groups aimed at serving the homeless.
When pressed about whether her plan calls for harsher penalties against those who litter or defecate on city streets, Breed said “I didn’t express anything about a penalty.”
