Local politics has been boring the shit out of me lately, so I appreciate The Examiner’s tabloid instincts at trying to tart things up around here.

"When construction began, hundreds of rats ran out into the neighborhood.
Now AT&T Park is a model for the new architecture of baseball stadiums and is the anchor of the first totally new neighborhood in San Francisco in decades. People howled at the idea of gentrifying the area. But the ballpark has turned out to be the rarest of urban concepts - a big idea done well. This is not only a postcard-perfect structure; it has helped to drive a tsunami of development that has transformed an urban wasteland into the city’s new hot address.”

My relationship with this building is bordering on unhealthy.

How you can make that hideous behemoth look pretty is beyond me. You’re like the stylist who made Khloe Kardashian seem hot for about 5 seconds during that one shoot.
But we wake up next to her, and it’s a tough sell.

Once a year, when the cherry trees have blossomed, the Jefferson Memorial is the most beautiful monument in Washington DC.
But the Vietnam Memorial is a close second. And for nearly antithetical reasons.

See, this is how it’s done.
What’s building is that, you ask?
The French Embassy? In London?
No, that’s San Francisco’s City Hall. It’s how we roll.
When people point to the city’s legendary collective ego, I point to this building. Cause it ain’t braggin’ if ya done it.
How does it stack up?
Los Angeles? I’m embarrassed for you. As always.
Chicago? That flashy haircut can’t mask a NYSE knockoff.
New York City? Staid. I expect more from the modern-day Rome.
Dallas? Seriously, are you fucking kidding us, Dallas?
Thank god for Philadelphia. You’d think civic architecture was dead in America.
And you know what San Jose? Thumbs up. It’s not a choice I would have expected from you, but you pull it off. It’s chic. You look sexy, girl.
