It’s interesting what a minor change of neighborhood name does to an article. The article in question is this one from The Chron. In the original, naturally, they post this bizarre incident as happening in the Tenderloin. Of course the argument can be made that the neighborhood is also Union Square as the 300 block of Ellis is in that transition zone that goes from Hilton Hotel to Glide Memorial soup kitchen line across Taylor. Yes, it’s Loin, but yes, it’s Union Square. It’s a bit of food for thought. That and the fact that once again, it goes to show that if you’re looking for trouble when you head to the Loin, trouble you shall find. I have to disagree that this is par for the Loin in that for the rest of us, we seem to manage living our Loin lives without the need for body armor.
