Seeing the pictures of same-sex marriages taking place throughout California puts me in mind of another "only in San Francisco" phenomenon I experienced the last time I was out there, a couple of months ago.
San Francisco, as you may know, is engaged in a unique and controversial experiment to become the first municipality to mandate universal health coverage. Restaurateurs have been among the unhappy business owners opposing the policy, but in the meantime they are learning to live with it -- by passing the cost directly onto their customers.
One fancy-pants restaurant I ate at announced on the menu: "In order to provide the very best health benefits for all of our employees, a 4 % surcharge will be added to all food and beverage sales."
