Socialism’s Front Woman
Young candidate for president calls for people to get organized
Peta Lindsay’s campaign is not about a short-term electoral victory. It’s about building a movement, she says, and setting an example for young people who feel alienated by the political scene.
The Hungry Ghosts
Doctor says loss and trauma cause addiction—not just genetics
Maté is a compelling speaker, as his agile phraseology and hard-earned authority bear out—regardless of whether you agree with his conclusions. And some people don't.
Around and Around
In defense of the Candelaria roundabout
The intersection sees 300 percent more accidents with pedestrians than the rest of the city, equivalent to the San Mateo and Montgomery intersection. That is just startling for an area that rightfully prides itself on a mellow pace of life.
Rain on Downtown’s Parade
Twinkle Light Parade moves to Nob Hill, strip clubs are scrutinized, and the city bans spice and bath salts.

2019 Hoof Health Conference
The wait is over! The Hoof Trimmers Association is stampeding through town this weekend for what will most likely end up being three solid days of absolute debauchery at the 2019 Hoof Health Conference. The infamous band of scoundrels are gathering at the Crown Plaza to view chute and trimming demonstrations, shop vendor booths and meet with like-minded, hoof-obsessed enthusiasts—for three days. Yes. Starting at 1pm on Thursday, Feb. 21 and continuing through Saturday, Feb. 23, those rowdy rascals are trading hoof secrets and discussing hoof health with basically no oversight, meaning pretty much anything can happen … like maybe a comedic ventriloquist amongst a 40 and under mixer and other tomfoolery. Tickets for active members of the association, dairy producers and veterinarians cost $175. For casual observers, tickets cost $310.

Black Lives Matter March
The state we live in is historically a melting pot of culture and beauty. During February, Black History Month, we observe all facets of African-American culture: history, progress, the victories, the continuation of repression, the love. What better time than Saturday, Feb. 23 for the annual Black Lives Matter March? Stand tall and raise a fist to fight alongside the brothers and sisters of the community. The march starts at 5pm at Century 14 Downtown and goes loud and proud into the night, ending at 10:30pm. Stand against police brutality. Stand against inequality. Stand for peace. Stand for justice. Affirm the existence of black bodies in a world that consistently tells them they aren't human. Stand for humanity.
