Every journalist has their Holy Grail. And ever since this whole Mirkarimi saga started, I have wanted to bust it wide open, and uncover what everyone was quietly talking about.

After what has seemed like the longest spring training in history, opening day is finally here. Nope, I'm not talking about baseball. I am talking about our sheriff, Ross Mirkarimi, and finally we can get this whole trial underway.

Does it seem that lately we are waiting longer and longer to save things that mean something in this town?

Some victory laps are expected, and some are not. S.F.'s agreement with the America's Cup organizers is finally going to the full Board of Supervisors next week. Many are relieved, but the manner of this victory lap is particularly odd.

As much as we talk about economic tax breaks, historical districts, and other "drivers" of our economy, the reality is the lifeblood of our future is these kids. Schools like De Marillac anchor a neighborhood in a way that no legislation ever will.

What does it mean to be a native San Franciscan? Such an easy question, and yet I was unable to get my arms around it.

Having fun yet Mister Mayor? Somewhere along the line, you must have realized that there is no grace period for this job. And worse, that there is no place to hide.

Besides this being the possible end to a progressive golden boy, could this also be a Waterloo for the progressive movement in San Francisco?

Friday Footsteps: San Francisco Nostalgia

Any New Year's run through San Francisco is going to be as much a run into the past as a run into the future.
