  1. Had to drive down Sunset this morning (Monday). The street has been transformed into a garbage dump stretching for blocks around the site of yesterday’s Sunset Junction Fair. Bleh!!!!

  2. This was my 10th year in the “danger zone” by the fair (in other words, my 10th year of not being able to leave my house without having to park 2 miles away due to tens of thousands of “friends” visiting for two days). This year’s SJ seems to be the worst noise wise — it was SO MUCH LOUDER than previous years — and trash wise. Sunset and the adjoining streets are a garbage dump. Every year it is bad of course but this year seems much worse. You’d think returning the neighborhood to its previous state would be a prerequisite for shutting down Sunset. It is disgraceful.
