Clean up the streets

Letter to the editor in today's SF Chronicle:

No straws in San Francisco, but trash, needles and bacteria are OK. What a mess!

Well the mayor is not sweeping in front of her own house as she requested street sweepers re-routed to sweep her block.

One wonders if the politicians are aware of the fact that the over 4-million syringes given out by the City and usually left on the sidewalks and in bushes have plastic barrels.

Needle exchange is yet another of the San Fran Progressives 'unforeseen consequences'; initially the program sounded great, a one-to-one exchange of used needle for a clean one. Many IV drug users, especially meth users, were sure this was some kind of plot so enterprising people began collecting the tossed needles, exchanging them and then selling the new ones to the users. One volunteer said a person would hand them a paper bag full of twigs and weeds and syringes and claim there were 15 inside. The volunteer wasn't about to reach in and count so just hands over 15 new syringes.
Now probably they just hand out syringes without the bother of an exchange.
