Roger Boas, a failed mayoral candidate who was city administrator under two mayors for a decade, pleaded guilty Thursday to charges stemming from having sex with teen-age girls at a brothel.

A reader, Virginia Vignol, who has just returned from up north, sends me a recent Herb Caen column, from the San Francisco Chronicle, in which he deplores his city's dirty streets.
