It's changed a lot since then ..... the crack epidemic really brought the city low, but it's much nicer now.

I've seen more of the world that you'd ever see (you sound like someone from provincial parts of CA--hint: where the ladies are big), and I grew up in Europe, moving from large city to another, later lived in NYC, LA and other large US cities. I also had been to every state of the US and lived in smaller towns. As to seeing "much of San Francisco"--I tried over and over, during the course of 15 years to drop in and see more... sorry, the disgust of that place is so strong I can't tolerate even being there for more than a couple of hours. Not much to see, boring uniform nothingness.

San Francisco is the most DISGUSTING place I ever been to. I felt it from day 1. People there look like they're result of some medical experiment gone wrong, ugly and unhealthy, weak-looking. Nasty, soulless, shallow, smug people as well plus aggressive panhandlers who know police won't bother to stop them whatever they do. Crime. Ugly architecture, lack of greens. People who dress like identical clones. Cookie-cutter, boring appearance of streets. Greedy hollow-eyed yuppies. No middle class. Druggies, junkies. Wannabe little hipsters who try hard cause they're in the Crisco now. Good luck, residents--your mayors think you should finance the street junkies via "social services", while said junkies look down at you as "slaves of society" and feel entitled to the handout.

Anyone who likes SF havn't seen much of the world ideed; SF is a nasty little provincial town that has no importance outside North Cal.... while smug, proviincial residents think they live in the world capital, oh yeah. There's no arts in that city (artistic community had been driven out by yuppies long ago) Worst place in the US. Now, South Bay can be so-so ok, at least tolerable if one has to be in the Bay due to work--it's not a fun place to be either, but at least not as ugly as SF. I really hope SF will be off the face of earth after earthquake--by the way, there'll be no water there, their emergency supply is flawed. This non-sustainable city should not exist. Hetch Hetchy should be returned to natural state. Someone else had put it differently: "There's something wrong about that city... weird, cold vibe. Something is wrong"... anyway they say it's going to be Hayward fault and it's 20% chance in the next 2 years.

I'm not interested in or concerned with being entertaining.

Neither I have any concern of being fake, sweet or lie to please the residents of SF
