Video: In Wake of San Bruno Inferno, PG&E's Handling of Castro Gas Leak Angers Merchants

Posted By on Wed, Dec 8, 2010 at 11:30 AM

This week's Matt Smith column describes how PG&E's mishandling of a relatively minor gas leak left Castro merchants on edge weeks later.

The leak started as a loud hiss in the early afternoon of Oct. 21, just outside Cliff's Variety at Castro and 18th. Cliff's manager Terry Asten first learned of the leak when she noticed construction workers sprinting away from the front of her store yelling "Run!"

Here she is describing what she believes is PG&E's mishandling of the mishap.

    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall.

DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.
