Speaking of tradition -
KGO radio is ditching its talk radio format. A new format will be announced on Monday.
Interesting that this is happening in Starkey's final season calling Cal football. Not saying that there is a linkage between the two events, just that it's interesting.

Yesterday (or was it the day before?) g. oso linked to an article about his neighbor being shot and killed by armed catalytic converter thieves.
Just a few minutes ago, Berkeley PD posted on Nextdoor that armed catalytic converter thieves shot at a resident yelling at the thieves to stop. This happened in the Berkeley Hills, about 3.5 blocks from Casa de Slug.
Thieves are becoming more brazen and desperate. They're going into areas that have historically been considered "safe".

Interesting few days at the Kennedy Center. Hamilton is finishing up a run in the Opera House. Last night was the first of four for Bob Weir from the Grateful Dead and his band in the Concert Hall playing with the National Symphony Pops Orchestra. All shows of both are sold out but not with the normal KenCen demographic. Also don't usually smell weed when I'm there. Also fun to see some of the busses parked on the street in front of the Watergate and the Saudi Embassy both of which are right across from the KenCen.
