Bus Report #158
Today was the first day back at school for the public school kids of San Francisco. There were lots of new and familiar faces on the bus.
Jeans so new they still had creases in them. White shoes waiting to get scuffed. Pristine backpacks.
In the Lower Haight, right in front of Walgreen's, a neighborhood group had a table set up and a sign that said "have a great school year! From your Lower Haight Neighbors".
It looked like they were giving out goody bags, or something, to the kids passing by. It was nice.
The obsessive-rear-of-the-bus-man got on at Mission and barrelled his way to the rear of the bus.
I saw the Chef, the dreadlocked security guard, and the mom and daughter off to Kindergarten.
