This fair was insane. A mass of aging hippies and their families descended upon our neighborhood to enjoy the various meat kabobs, drum circles, cardboard robots and tye dyed fashions. More Crocs and less Birkenstocks this year. I haven’t decided yet which I find more offensive.  Of all the things I saw today, I believe the strangest was the “prayer tent.”  Who comes to a street fair to pray in a tent all day? To each, his own. Speaking of preaching, I also enjoyed the ten different medical marijuana information booths. Did you know you can use marijuana as medicine??  You can also power your car, build your house and wipe your ass with it! Dude, no way! I can’t believe I have never heard of this miracle plant before. Thanks for coming to the Haight  today to teach us about it. O.K., I’m getting salty, I better stop. We’re all exhausted and glad it’s over.  See you next year.
