All right!!! I found an optical store on Haight St in Haight-Ashbury. The girl working there put in a new screw for me at about 4:10. No charge. I've been standing here at Haight & Ashbury for a short time, waiting for something interesting to happen, but I suspect the magic disappeared nearly 40 years ago. Sadly, Haight-Ashbury has become a tourist attraction. Don't get me wrong; it's nothing like Fisherman's Wharf or Key West, but the events that made this place important are now History lessons in high school text books, and most of the people who made those events happen are dead or sixtysomething yuppies. This neighborhood is beautiful, just like every other part of San Francisco, but it feels pretty much like every happenin' college town (minus the college, of course)... How come whenever I eat two or three relatively large food items at McDonald's (like double cheeseburgers) I
leave feeling just as hungry as when I arrived. It's not a value menu if you have to eat 5 to fill up.
