Presidio Politics

As noted in the Bay Guardian, the Presidio of San Francisco (part of Golden Gate National Park) is about as inappropriate a place as one could come up with for a private museum financed by a man who made his fortune from slavery and child labor. The Fisher family wealth, made from their GAP empire, might buy favors from less scrupulous San Franciscans like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and US Senator Dianne Feinstein, but it can't buy the soul of the city. As for politics, it should be interesting to watch the interaction between the new San Francisco Board of Supervisors and San Francisco's Congressional delegation; it's what San Franciscans live for.
