What the hell is going on there at City Hall? Sean Elsbernd, Ross Mirkarimi, Michela Alioto-Pier's staff, random statues -- everyone is cranking a kid these days. Can we tie this in to the Sean Penn scenes filmed on location for Milk? In addition to prancing up the stairs, what else did he do?

In yet another instance of tabloid journalism calling the tune for all the rest of us, mainstream folks followed a gossip blog yesterday in reporting that San Francisco's first couple is expecting. We'd congratulate Gavin and Jennifer with a cigar -- but, thanks to city legislation, I can no longer buy them at my corner Walgreen's.
