The attractiveness of the streetcars and the physical presence of the steel rails can really serve to bind the elements of the park -- which is actually quite linear if you look at it. Again, good story. Hope it makes an impact.

Complimentary words: 50. Patronizing words we could have done without: 1.: Thanks for an inspiring article about Aquatic Park. It hadn't even occurred to me that that place could be more than it is. I had always just written it off as a part of the tourist complex of Fisherman's Wharf.
I hope the powers that be read your fine little paper.
No ifs, ands, oar boats: As a longtime member of the South End Rowing Club and a member of its board of directors, I do not recall ever hearing of, endorsing, or promoting the removal of any part or parcel of Aquatic Park for parking spaces for its members. This is not the policy of the South End. Also, we are not a private club. We are open to the public.

P.S. I like your cartoons anyway.
So imagine my disappointment when you neglect to run Free Will Astrology (as you have on more than one occasion) or repeat [one] week's column (as you did [last] week) without explanation or apology. To add insult to injury, you recently shrunk the column down to a microscopic typeface even smaller than the personals.
Is this any way to treat the best feature of your paper?
Editor's note: Due to a production error, SF Weekly did accidentally repeat last week's Free Will Astrology column from the week before. The correct column for last week can be found on our Web site, sfweekly.com. We apologize for the mistake.
Give us a minute. We're still thinking.: Which is more outdated, Lily Tomlin's The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe or your review of Lily Tomlin's The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe ("Rewind," Stage, Jan. 9)? Just curious.
