Larry Moore's Story Brings Out the Best in San Francisco
|June 5, 2009||Posted by jamie under Rincon Hill Businesses|
I posted links to the stories about Larry Moore written by Chuck Nevius in the Chronicle late in the day yesterday because they made me smile, and I hope they made you smile too – and maybe even consider getting a shoe shine at New Montgomery and Market Streets in the near future. Larry Moore lives under a Bay Bridge ramp in the Rincon Hill neighborhood, and he’s turning his life around and contributing to society … and reasonable San Franciscans completely support him according to a story in the Chronicle today. So today’s story about Larry Moore made me smile again. In the midst of a lot of bad news, especially dealing with state and local budgets that will likely bring out the worst in people and their divisive “you’re either with us or you’re against us” mentality, it is wonderful to see that many of us reasonable folks recognize that we’re all in this together despite our individuality and philosophical disagreements here and there.
I know where I’ll be getting my shoes shined from now on … see you soon Larry!
