Poo Sticks

San Francisco is a city of neighborhoods. The Haight, The Mission, North Beach, Bernal Heights, SoMa (South of Market).

SoMa’s great, I lived and worked there for the first couple San Francisco years. It’s where all the internet companies are (were?), a landscape of warehouses and lofts, machine shops and furniture stores, artist studios and galleries, and diverse overall.

But a thing about SoMa is that there’s an amazing amount of feces laying around. While some people may think that any amount amazing — and I’d be one of these people — there really is a substantial quantity laying around.

Human feces mostly, but that presence seems to encourage dog owners to be slightly more lackadaisical with their collection duties.

I’m not exactly sure why that is. There are lots of homeless people in SoMa, so that obviously contributes. (It’s a flat neighborhood, and probably gets more sun – less fog – than any other area of The City.). In addition to the homeless population, there’s also a lot of drug users and druggie services like rehab clinics and probation offices. I’m not sure if folks that do hard drugs at the end of back alleys also like to shit on the sidewalk, but I wouldn’t put it past ‘em.

Well, at least it’s being put to good use now: madeyouthink.org

My friend Brian from 1000 Journals sent me this link. Thanks Brian!
