I Make Leah Garchik

Leah knows how to take the raw idea and make a nice item. It was one of Herb Caen's talents and much undervalued.

And a pack of neighbors on Telegraph Hall - aided by the Trust for Public Land and the Northeast San Francisco Conservancy - raised almost a million dollars to buy a vacant lot on the east side of the hill, where about 15 years ago a house came tumbling down in a rainstorm. The lot will become part of the Grace Marchant Gardens.

"With all those sportswriters who have ever smoked a joint, sniffed a line or patronized a hooker self-righteously criticizing the moral fiber of Barry Bonds," asks Michael Robertson of the University of San Francisco, "aren't we justified in calling it a smugfest?"
