State of the City and Smash 'n' Grabs

In this episode of Listen Local, we talk about the mayor's state of the city address last week. Housing is, of course, one of both Ed Lee's and our top priorities. We chat about funds for affordable housing, the Ellis Act, and what some of Lee's promises in his speech might actually translate to in our day-to-day realities.  

Afterward, we discuss the local phenomenon of smash-and-grabs -- having a car window smashed and anything remotely valuable taken is practically a rite of passage for any city car owner, and in the Mission, there's almost a competition over which block is the worst. We talk about ways to protect yourself from this popular form of theft and a few tricks for what you can do if your electronics are indeed stolen (see this excellent CNET guide).
