For those of you who can't get enough news about San Francisco's de facto Happy Meal Ban -- and McDonald's and other fast food joints sidestepping it with startling ease -- here's more fuel for your fire.

Your humble narrator is going to talk Happy Meal bans and San Francisco government on the radio. Radio in Cleveland, which is a long way from here both geographically and politically. And yet, the denouement of San Francisco's "Healthy Meal Incentive Ordinance" has turned heads far and wide. Hence: Hello Cleveland!

You can tune in to hear about all things Happy Meal at around 10:22 a.m. Saturday on WHK 1420 AM's "Real Law Radio."

It's a show featuring a left-leaning civil liberties instructor and

right-leaning cop and firearms instructor -- who swear they get along.

Since you're probably not within the station's broadcast radius, you can listen over the internet here. You can also call in and make your opinions heard by dialing these numbers.

East Coasters have plenty of preconceived notions about San Franciscans. One of them shouldn't be that we can't get up before 10:20 on a Saturday morning.

The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
