GEORGE (GASCONE) AND THE SIX FORTY-SEVENS: ILLEGAL LODGING IN SAN FRANCISCO

I wasn’t supposed to write this article- in fact, I was actively discouraged by someone I love in the deepest way. “You can’t write an article about (SF 49ers coach)  Mike Singletary’s firing," said Tony Robles, POOR Magazine’s co-editor and dedicated fan.

A Pre-History of Child Protective Services

Like many things that ultimately impact all poor folks, some of the first guinea pigs/victims for negative policy ideas in the bloody herstory of Amerikkka, were poor white people.  Indentured servitude and the Orphan Train were two huge examples.  After the bugs were beaten out of indentured servitude, modern slavery was invented, polished, and tweaked.

The Child Protective Services (CPS) version came after the Amerikkkan Civil War. 

Bird On A Wire: The Raven Speaks out on KRON 4's Stanley Roberts of "People Behaving Badly"

(Note: Stanley Roberts is the host of a TV segment called "People Behaving Badly" on San Francisco TV outlet KRON 4..."The News Station". The segment includes footage of people deemed to be behaving badly in real time. It includes the "Bad Behavior" of many, excluding the bad behavior of Stanley Roberts because it is assumed--by this writer anyway--that Mr. Stanley Roberts never behaves badly...ever. Enjoy)
