"In the weeks following the 1906 earthquake, thousands of tradesmen converged on San Francisco. Using their hands and simple tools, these men would rebuild the city. After 100 years, we hear their stories in this soon-to-be released television documentary. To be followed by a panel of workers in the building trades."

  This should be a good opportunity to go and learn how SF was able to quickly rebuild itself without today's stifling zoning laws, building codes, public hearings before the planning commission, environmental impact reports, shadow studies, union work rules, etc.

  I look forward to asking with mock indignation why we are celebrating this dangerous legacy of people doing things without the permission of government bureaucrats.

Yours in liberty,
