SF is ‘too hilly to be dull,’ and other curious verdicts
Among the curious verdicts delivered by the Washington-based political writer:
- San Francisco is “too hilly to be dull.”
- The cable car system is “the world’s largest toy train layout,” a joke so good he repeats it a paragraph later.
- “San Francisco gives the impression that it is against the law to tear anything down.”
- “The Bay Area treats its stereotypes the way some places care for their old buildings.”
These and other observations, with numerous comparisons to Washington, DC, in Smith’s article.
