Because He's Black (NYTimes Rhoden on Bonds)

I haven't seen a columnist for a major paper openly take up the race issue in the Bonds trial, in a long time. I wonder why Rhoden does so now. (This might be behind the paywall.)

Architectural Guilty Pleasures (John King, SFChron)

4

I had always thought the brick was in recognition of all the old brick warehouses that used to be there when the park was built, and it was just a veneer because, well, we all know why the old real brick warehouses are mostly gone now. That said, I always thought the one thing that PNC Park did better was surfacing in the local yellow stone. Though I guess what would that have been for SF -- serpentinite? I'm not well versed in architectural theory and practice of the last few decades, but I gather it's all about making functional structures that meekly meld into their surroundings.

Giants winning = less crime, notes student

+

Eighth-grader Ella Chatfield-Stiehler went on the city Police Department's computerized crime data site, crunched comparisons of October 2009 and October 2010 and found that car thefts and auto burglaries dipped significantly last year when the hometown baseball heroes were doing their thong-panda-beard thing. Fans clog downtown for the Nov. 3 Giants victory parade following their World Series win in the fall. "October, 2010 was a wonderful month for San Francisco citizens and San Francisco Giants fans all over," Ella wrote in the introduction to her project for this year's science fair. "There was a feeling of happiness all over the city throughout the month of October and into November." This ebullience, she theorizes, was directly responsible for the drop in auto thefts from about 320 in October 2009 to about 220 in October 2010, and in car burglaries from about 900 in October 2009 to about 600 in October 2010. Her research also showed that personal theft, robbery and arson totals stayed about the same as '09 levels.

Also, not all of the players love constant media attention. Tim Lincecum and Buster Posey, to name two, would be perfectly happy if the media didn't camp out at their lockers. They cooperate, but they can live without bright personal limelight.

First Passenger 747 Rusting in Korea

The first 747 to fly commercially could be expected to enjoy an honored retirement somewhere in an aviation museum. After all, the only jumbo jet more senior — the first one built, which was only used for test flights — now sits outside Seattle's Museum of Flight.
