Today's reader query is less a question than a comment, but one we'd like to share with you nonetheless given recent goings-on in the nabe:

While standing at the intersection between Stockton, Columbus, and Green Streets, I took note of what I've walked by so many hundreds of times: the glut of banks that clog each corner. Now I realize that North Beach is a heavily trafficked neighborhood, and I love it all the same [Ed. note: so do we]. However, given the amount of political grandstanding I'm seeing in the news regarding franchises, the irony here does strike me. Regardless of its differences as a neighborhood, even the Mission only has a few big banks scattered about. Food for thought."
