#145: Bach at the Burger King
By Mark Isero • Issue #145 • View online
Have you had a good morning so far, Loyal Readers? I hope so. This week’s issue focuses on the effects of gentrification, the challenges of integration, the complexities of appropriation, the horrors of elephant poaching, and the joys of succulents. Today’s lead article explores how a community group in San Francisco has weaponized Baroque music to drive away homeless people from a Burger King near City Hall. It should spur feelings.
Next Wednesday is HHH #6! Get your free ticket here. We’re meeting at Room 389 in Oakland beginning at 5:30 pm. Already 31 Loyal Readers are attending. Let’s reach 50, maybe?
