Through the Intercession of Imbeciles

I Love A Parade was a song written explicitly with San Francisco in mind, and few are as adept at embracing the city of yore, kinda today and maybe tomorrow than the St. Stupid’s Day Parade.
Stupidity licks at our heels these days as often as it did yesterday and why not recognize the grand idiocies and wave the dunce cap in cheer?

Bishop Joey calls the faithful to gather at the Embarcadero to follow the Via Dumbfounderosa in the tradition of that which falls in weekday time.  Revel ye revelers, the bells call, and remember costume, as always, is encouraged.

Stephen Torres - Threadbare-Fact Finder (Editor, San Francisco)

Stephen's early years were spent in a boxcar overlooking downtown Los Angeles. From there he moved around the state with his family before settling under the warm blanket of smog that covers suburban Southern California. Moving around led to his inability to stay in one place for very long, but San Francisco has been reeling him back in with its siren song since 1999.
By trade he pours booze, but likes to think he can write and does so occasionally for the SF Bay Guardian, Bold Italic and 7x7. He also likes to enjoy time spent in old eateries, bars and businesses that, by most standards, would have been condemned a long time ago.
