In 1973 Willie Brown said, "Let's give public ownership of land values a whirl: it'll end slums and poverty." Nobody paid attention, so he joined the rest of the population in not paying attention and went on to great fame and fortune while the slums persisted and do-gooders wept empty sobs.

Find out what it's all about you never knew on this fast-paced, factual stride through San Francisco's social movements, all through the eyes of Willie Brown. His letter will be on hand for perusal. He may be on hand to demur.

BONUS: coming on this walk qualifies you for entering the monthly $500 Commons writing prize.
