Hollywood has one. Now Cambridge’s got one. SF should have one, too. A star-paved Walk of Fame.
We’ve got stars and plenty of ’em. If you only count the ones born here. One website counted 424. We’ve got enough to line Market Street from end to end.
Here are a few that clearly deserve a star.
Writers like Pierre Salinger and Robert Frost (He may have moved to New England when he was 11 but he was born here.)
Musicians like Jerry Garcia, Paul Kantner
Architect Julia Morgan
Comedian Margaret Cho
Voiceover artist Mel Blanc (Porky Pig, Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Sylvester, Foghorn Leghorn)
Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer
Photographer Ansel Adams
Senator Dianne Feinstein
Anthropologist Dian Fossey
Even Casper Weinberger
O.J. can lead the Walk of Shame
Then there are the people who became famous in San Francisco
Like Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Jewelle Gomez, Dashiell Hammett, Maya Angelou, Amy Tan, Robin Williams, Mark Twain, Harvey Milk, Grace Slick, Danielle Steel, Armistead Maupin….
Whad’ya think? Don’t we deserve a star studded Walk of Fame?
