on double takes

So I'm in San Francisco this week. I'll be speaking at a Unix conference.

I took BART from the airport to downtown, and then walked with my bags from the Powell Street Station to the hotel, just a few blocks. At some point I looked up and saw a huge store sign reading FCUK*.

After thinking I was misreading it, and being sort of amazed that there'd be that kind of sign in downtown San Francisco, I realized that the store was "French Connection UK". There's an equally bold website at www.french-connection.com.

I wonder what the tourists wandering all around this town think of that.

I don't actually speak until Tuesday morning, so it's basically slum around and be tourist myself for the next couple of days.

Thanks! I'm actually reasonably sort of familiar with SF, so I can launch myself on various walking tours, plus find good restaurants and vistas. And the other day I went with a friend who is actually a really good tour guide, very knowledgeable of SF history and architecture. I like it here too, but I don't know how much I'd like actually living here.
