    Why a Long-Weekend Trip to Juneau is Good for the Soul

    Ever since the Barleycorn memorial was erected earlier this week, quite the discussion has been taking place in the comments section. The latest: "Aaron Peskin, Willie Brown, the Board of Supervisors and the Mayor's office all tried to prevail on Ms. Hanson to reconsider [shuttering the Barleycorn]. She wouldn't even return their phone calls. And since it's a private property issue, there was nothing else they could do ... So now Ms. Hanson owns a building that she over-payed for, with losses for construction, lost commercial rent and/or revenue approaching $250,000 for the year. She apparently has given up on procuring liquor licenses for the two replacement businesses, having been advised by the ABC that there is a 'large and well-organized opposition' to her -- what a shock, eh?"
