On a busy weekend for crime, shootings, and walking in front of MUNI vehicles, the outhouse arsonist(s) returned once more, with a burnout on the 700 block of Chestnut Street yesterday. Deviating from the previous M.O., porta-john No. 22 was lit ablaze at 5:25 in the evening according to police; 20 of the previous 21 receptacles were immolated in the pre-dawn hours.
