Speaking of building this city on rock and roll, my very awesome friend Art sent me these photos of San Francisco's Embarcadero before the 1989 Earthquake.I pointed out that while I knew a freeway blocked what is now a glorious, high-end, tasteful boulevard of dreams, I couldn't really remember what it looked like. What a fucking dump!
So ruined by the earthquake, the freeway had to be torn down to great controversy. Seriously. People were PISSED. I mean, really. How could you tear down this beautiful, convenient, totally necessary freeway?
