City Disappears Addresses at Ocean Beach

New, 3 comments

It's always heartening to log on to your local paper's website and find that the city has simply nixed the addy's of hundreds of locals, thus rendering them ... dead? Invisible? Non-existent? According to the ever-vigilant Chron, A couple of hundred residents along Ocean Beach— 94 apartments and 6 houses' worth— lost their addresses in a bureaucratic mix-up involving crossed street signs, several municipal databases, and a general lack of caring and/ or communication on the part of the city. Says one Great Highway La Playa resident: "This is starting to feel like one of those instances where someone is accidentally, bureaucratically declared dead ... It has the potential to become Kafka-esque." [SF Gate]
