If someone asked me before last week to pick any decade to live in San Francisco I would have probably chosen the 1960s for obvious reasons. Janis Joplin being one of them. Then I started reading Season of the Witch: Enchantment, Terror, and Deliverance in the City of Love by David Talbot. I had no idea that the Manson Family, Jim Jones and the Symbionese Liberation Army were based in San Francisco. Not to mention the Zebra murders and the Zodiac killer. Those took place in the ’70s but the downward turn started in the late 60’s. I don’t think I could hack it. I’d probably last through 1967.
If you could choose any decade to live in San Francisco, which decade would you choose?
