LETTERS Imagine the Traffic Jam Editor: In your excellent article about how Nutraceutical is holding hostage the heart of Noe Valley’s most important shopping street, I was floored by one excellent suggestion for the abandoned Real Food Company building: the re-opening of the now-shuttered, only–in–San Francisco skin salon and workers' cooperative, the Lusty Lady. I can see the marquee now: “Strippers with Strollers!” Rik Myślewski Duncan Street

One of the Best Editor: Twenty‐fourth Street between Noe and Castro streets was number 10 of 10 of the best gift‐gathering blocks in the Bay Area, according to the Novem‐ ber issue of San Francisco Magazine. “The Looker: Gift Guide 2013,” a holi‐ day feature by Lauren Murrow, in‐ cluded 24th Street as one of its top 10 destinations. Using a pictorial format, the maga‐ zine championed items sold at nine Noe Valley businesses. It showed a Winter Factory onesie available at Small Frys, a Hajigang sari throw from Global Exchange, a wool half‐button‐ down sweater from Sean, bake‐at‐ home chocolate chip pecan cookie dough from Noe Valley Bakery, an Alana Douvros python cuff from Gallery of Jewels, Beatles guitar picks from Russo Music, Amattere chocolate bars from Spain from Chocolate Cov‐ ered, Katie Gilmartin prints and Merry Widow Moulin Rouge cocktail recipe glasses from When Modern Was, and a St. George Distillery gin sampler from PlumpJack Wine & Spirits.

Nevius for helping shut down the Market Street Recycling Center These are refugees from a country you’ve never seen nor can imagine Men and women damaged or broken or both, who know you despise them Know you worship greed and nourish our smug disdain to make them vanish —Tom Peck Sept. 12, 2013
