Re: “Can Building Housing Lower Rents?

seattle has increased density by tearing down single family houses and building 4 story mixed use developments with apartments above. something that could happen easily in sf if there wasn't so much public opposition. i lived in seattle at the start of this new trend and it was horrific to see perfectly good, gorgeous old mansions demolished for cookie cutter generic blocks of apartments, but if it's lowered rents, maybe it was worth it? no easy answers on this one. i'm becoming resigned to the fact that things change and grieve the loss but try to accept reality.

Re: “A Guide to the East Bay's Best Tortas

the carne asada torta at El Farolito is excellent - cheese grilled crispy, the steak is a whole piece, not the little pieces you get everywhere else. my favorite, though i'll check out these.

Re: “Stop Blaming Artists and Musicians for the Ghost Ship Fire. Blame People In Power Who Screwed Up.

"Specifically, Im talking about underfunded government agencies, and the myopic elected officials that ignored these departments needs. "

what agencies exactly are you talking about? fire and inspection departments? by their nature artist warehouses are illegal - people saving money and living under the radar in non-residential spaces. you can't bring the government in on this, they would have a liability nightmare on their hands and would have to evict people to follow the law. unfortunately, if you want to live under the radar, the burden is on you to keep yourself safe. not to blame the victims, but it's the reality of this type of life. maybe there needs to be an underground advocacy group of like-minded building/safety professionals to advise anonymously about a space, but you can't ask anyone to take on responsibility in situations like this. it's a can of worms all around. don't get me wrong, this tragedy is heartbreaking and terrible beyond belief, but blaming the government for this is completely off the mark.

and for the record i completely support artists living in warehouses, or anyone living nontraditional lives. but it comes with a different sets of responsibilities, it's just the reality.
