Jerry Flamm, RIP -- March 15, 2010

Jerry Flamm, author of two San Francisco memoirs that I enjoyed, passed away recently. Good Life in Hard Times and Hometown San Francisco gave me many great stories about growing up, listening to the radio, and working for newspapers in the 1920s and 1930s. Flamm's father was a policeman who headed the Chinatown Squad. He was well-liked in the Chinese community because he treated them with respect.

It was relatively warm today.
