Dear Mayor Lee, don't sign this legislation. I promise that you won't personally have to get naked. In fact, I forbid it. But please remember while you're contemplating the sterilized, homogenized San Francisco of your dreams: there are some things an app can't do for you:

Put flowers in your hair.
Let you feel the sunshine on your butt.
Create a culture of inclusion and tolerance.
Stand in line for amazing bread.
Ride a cable car.
Chat with the homeless dude outside your neighborhood doughnut shop.
Build the Golden Gate Bridge.
Revel in the fog that delights, irritates, protects, and charms us.

All these things (and many, many more) are San Francisco. I encourage and dare you not to diminish them or this place.
